I just took an amazing opportunity to journey out into Death Valley down uncharted dirt roads to soak in a natural hot spring, in the middle of the pitch black night.
It was a moonless night, more stars than sky and the Milky Way was comically vibrant overhead. A below freezing 20 degree outside temp, but the damn near scalding spring water made it just right. Oh yeah, and we happened to be howling alongside the native coyotes.
The whole trip was like something out of my most vivid dreams, and I was able to share it with 3 of the most unique people I know. Thanks again Emajyn for the experience, the incredible photo, and the even more incredible memories.
