6/24 - 6/24/09 - Chena Hot Springs

We took a side trip to Chena Hot Springs and stayed there for a couple of nights. The day we arrived it was pouring down rain and unfortunately, that eliminated the one tour we really wanted to take. We had heard a lot about the Ice Museum, but due to the high waters, they couldn't keep the temperature cold enough with visitors continually going in and out of the exhibit. The day after our arrrival brought much nicer weather, but it also brought too many people to the hot springs.
This photo is a view of the outside rock hot springs.
We did take a tour of their geothermal plant which produces the power for the facility. This next photo was taken in their hydrophonic greenhouse. It reminded us of the tour we went through in Epcot Center.
