With temperatures are already in the triple digits every day here in Tucson, it was time to escape to running water and a cool green forest. A friend invited us to spend a couple of days
at Wildwood Hot Springs north of Silver City. We were surprised to learn that the hot springs had reopened, under new management, after being
washed out in the flood of September 13, 2013. Stranded campers shot the following video the day after the flood:

One last swim in the Gila and then it was time to head home. The water was crystal clear and chest deep with an impressive current.
