Holcomb Creek to Deep Creek Hot Springs. 22 miles, 306 miles total.

It was an easy day, and I got an early start today. I stopped a few times during the day. Deep Creek was amazing, although I would have preferred to be hiking closer to the creek. Most of the time in this canyon, the trail was about 100 yards up the ridge, with the creek down a steep cliff below.

This is a brige that crosses the creek.

Finally, after about 10 more miles, I came to the Deep Creek Hot Springs, and this was a great way to end the day. I camped really close to the man-made pools and soaked 4 times in the 104 degree hot pools. It would have been nice to take another zero day here, but I feel the need to continue to make progress.
