I celebrated the world not ending by going with a friend for a soak in Hot Springs. Different tub than I usually get, but still right on the creek. The naturally warm water, piped up from underground, is heavenly on a cold morning.
A pair of pileated woodpeckers flew around the trees around the tub.
A fat squirrel appeared almost immediately. Apparently I'm not the only one who brings food to share. At first, he only took the peanuts I tossed to him.
After a while, though, he figured out how to open the plastic bag and help himself. He seemed to be taking the peanuts away to stash.
We drove around a bit up over the river.
And then a short walk before lunch.
Up in the mountains it had snowed overnight.
It was a gorgeous day, cool but sunny.
We tried to walk this trail, but ran into a little snag. We found another trail farther along that wasn't flooded out.
