Nelson, Hot Springs
I just had a pleasant trip to Nelson and Ainsworth. I would have stayed an extra day but it rained too much after I left the hot springs to do any hiking. I stayed in a hostel in Nelson that was quite pleasant and the waters at Ainsworth did wonders for my body and spirit. I shall return, but as I am from the US next visit I shall bring smaller bills than twenties. For a brief stay it is better to have smaller change, just to advise other short-termers from the US. I wish I could have stayed longer, and I promise to come back soon. Met some good people from Canada, Germany, the UK, and San Francisco who were also enjoying themselves. Drivers should take note of the signs about deer, as I encountered one RIGHT BY THE ROADSIDE just west of Ainsworth and I was unsure which way she would run. Glad my brakes are good.
