Mark Brzezicki happened across a news article on the Hotel reception TV while we were checking in about some natural hot springs near to where we were. Not ones to hang about, we were soon in a car heading for Boulder, Montana which is half way between Helena and Butte. Our destination is a place called Boulder Springs Hotel which has a totally natural spar of boiling hot springs. It’s a trip back in time as we pull into the kind of hotel you see in Cowboy films and very old by American standards.
We get a little history lesson from the lady on reception. Apparently we are in Peace Valley a place so special to the native indians that no fighting ever took place here when the Indian Wars were being fought between the indigenous population and the new europeans as represented by the US cavalry. Everyone observed the spiritual significance of this valley and it certainly is peaceful.
Mark and I enter the pool and it’s beautifully hot with water so thick with healing properties that it is hard to run your hands through the density of the liquid.
It is so relaxing especially with the knowledge that this water has been heated by the fires of the Earth’s core. Time becomes invisible here too and before we can even get to the steam room and freezing shower to further reinvigorate our tired bodies, it’s time for us to head back to civilisation and the rigours of the tour bus. It was a beautiful day.
