Ride to Ojo..

The ride to Ojo took me through some amazing sights of the mountains in Northern New Mexico... aspen trees, beautiful vistas...

had to make an emergency trip through Taos as my gas gauge was nearing E and I was unsure of the services in the Ojo area... man Taos was busy... the main strip was congested with touristas and the such.. was glad to make my way to the more desolute area of Ojo...

The resort http://ojocalientesprings.com/ was tucked away and had a very primitive rv area, which Zula and I loved...a small stream ran next to the camping area too...

But, the main attraction were the springs...I was so fortunate to be there at the time of the full moon too..

The round house...circa 1920's... a place for native people to gather... love it!!! I want a round house too!!!:)
.

I sat in hot spring pools that were rich in healing minerals (iron, soda, arsenic)  as well as saunas and an incredibly hot, hot tub oh and a mud bath too!!

My body and spirit soaked lavishly in the waters...was baked and encrusted in mud...pampered by mother nature... I only wished I could live closer to such a retreat!!!

One thing I really enjoyed was talking to the other visitors... such an intimate gathering...as well as all of us very relaxed we talked like we had known each other for years... actually one couple I spoke to now live in Taos and had met at the spring two years prior... Ojo Caliente is truly a magical place...

get there quickly though, before it becomes too white-a-sized!! I heard some new dude... probably from California... has big plans for the "resort/spa"... luckily the locals said that provisions are being made to offer a discount to the poeple who live around there... yah...like it is natural water... native to the people...historic and ancient...come on!!!
