Shortest backpacking trip ever~ and the hike to Goldstrike Hotsprings is really short.
It was nice to have a short hike in to set up base camp so we could do some exploring in the area.

Once we got settled in at camp we walked up to check out the lake. Along the way, we spooked a herd of Elk and watched them run away from us. We got to the lake and at some point, (since I was the only one who brought a beer) I decided to stop and enjoy the views with my beer. I sat there for a bit and took everything in while the others went on ahead a little bit. By the time they came back I had just finished up my beer and was ready to head back to camp with them.
We got back to camp around 5PM and started a fire and had dinner. We stayed up for several hours drinking beer and burning some nice oak. lol. Oh, yah, -there also was some fishing at some point. 8)

The next morning 3 of us walked upstream to explore while Kyle and Lilly stayed at camp. My Tevas are awesome for all the water crossings-Except- I did trap a minnow in one Teva during one crossing. :o
The trip upstream has nice views, some more awesome campsites and nice pools of water.

Back at camp we took our time getting packed, drank the last of the beers and drowned the what was left of our fire.

This was a really relaxing, fun trip with great company- Id be happy to come back here again at some point
Thanks Chumley for organizing this trip and for driving us :)
