Valley View Hot Springs
The name is very accurate as our site is up on a mountainside overlooking the valley.
It was a bit bumpy on the 7 mile washboard dirt road, the trailer was mostly intact when we got settled. Just a few things had shifted during travel.
The view really is amazing!
We took a guided hike up there in the evening. At a certain time in the evening thousands of bats are going to come streaming out of a cave. And they will all fly down to the valley to feed on the bugs over the farms.
The bat show was pretty amazing, I have a video that came out OK. I've never seen the bats in Austin TX but I think this is a mini version. Except we're on a beautiful mountain over a valley instead of a city.
If you put in a little effort there are 3 pools even farther up the mountain which aren't very deep but have amazing views.
