Dipping in a finger was plenty to verify that this is glacial water. I can’t believe there were actually people kayaking!
We decided to spend the restful part of our day at the hot springs rather than returning to the campground, so we drove back eastward. The Saturday afternoon crowd wasn’t much worse than the Friday afternoon crowd had been, so we enjoyed soaking for a couple of hours. We were just trying to decide whether or not to leave when a tourbus opened its doors and suddenly the place got a lot more crowded. We headed into town and did a bit of window shopping, eventually settling into a bar and relaxing for a while before coming back to the campground.
