Brandon went to a conference in Logan this week. Adrie went with a friend to Snowbird Resort. That left four of us to relax at home...and have a little fun too.
For our Wednesday activity, Kate chose to visit the local hot springs. For as much as we like to play tourist and for as few touristy things there are locally it's a wonder we haven't been here before?! I guess there is a right time for everything and boy did we get lucky. As we later found out it was HIPPIE CONVENTION 2014 with the Rainbow Family Gathering.
The gathering I learned later from Wiki started in the 60's and 70's, is anti-commercial, all about being one with the earth, and yes full of peace and love, man. Up to 10,000 gather at a time annually in a different national park. For all the peace there are always plenty of arrests for anything from urinating in public to nudity to drugs. What a cultural experience for us and in the middle of nowhere!
