After a little confusion as to where this place was, we arrived at about midnight, & I had no way of knowing what a sketchy little place this was.
Really, this place is the ULTIMATE Shady Shank.
Upon arrival you have to pay the creepiest creep caretaker your dues to enter & then it is free sailing from there.
Here are some of the sights that you walk past before you actually get to the the hot springs.
A little YMCA at 1:30 a.m.Really this place was the weirdest thing I have ever seen. There were two large cement hot spring pools, & then above those on the hill were these actual tubs just chilling on the mountain. The actual tubs freaked me out & I refused to get in them, even though I was freezing. We went back to the car boys went to the right & girls to the left & we all changed out of our wet suits & into our warm sweats. (That in & of itself was no small adventure!)
On our way out we paused to get a picture by this magical sign:
After we left Mystic in Monroe, the boys insisted we stop & get Dennys.
It was 3 in the morning by this point & I was so tired I couldn't even fathom eating a speck of toast, & especially not french toast or unlimited pancakes.
So while the other 5 dined on breakfast foods, I sat contently, yet sleepily & sipped water through a straw.
By the time we got home, I took a shower & got into bed, it was 5 a.m.
Waking up this morning was far from pleasurable because I just don't function well on 3 1/2 hours of sleep.
Just thinking about this whole night/morn makes me tired but the hot springs & late hour definitely left me feeling mystified.
