Chena Hot Springs

It was a steady -30 to -45°F for about a week solid by the time I made it to central Alaska in late January.  Just north of Anchorage I found a gem which saved my spirits, Chena Hot Springs.  Due to the extreme cold, the steam from the pools had encased the entire landscape in a thick coat of ice, which you can see below makes a playground for any photographer.  Not only that, but after months of frozen toes, this was the first hot spring I found since Liard 1000 miles back in B.C., so dipping in for a few days really helped kick the winter blues that had been building up.
