Certainly one of the most delightful of all the possible human experiences is to dip oneself into hot water. (And that goes double if it’s cold out.) To sit in a warm pool, soaking, and then to scurry across cold, wet ground to the showers, to dry off, only to then want to jump back in again? It is a feeling nonpareil. It is sublime.
The mineral hot springs at Sol Duc Hot Springs Resort offer this experience to every fortunate visitor, with three mineral pools, and one freshwater pool, all at different temperatures. In addition, if you’re looking for the ultimate one-two punch for any of your exploration aches and pains, the resort offers incredible poolside massages. Breathe in, breathe out. Nice.
