What a spectacular day this was by the water. The sun scorched my naked body. It burned getting into the 106 degree water later that evening at Terwilliger Hot Springs. I did dive headfirst into the crystal clear river. Exhilarating. However, do you have any idea how hard it is to hold your junk with one hand? Just saying, it wasn’t staying put. Thankfully through the power of editing, the family jewels remained in safe keeping.
I ventured to this sacred spot two weeks earlier, and saw the same collection of butterflies! I counted 40. I’m amazed they were still there when I returned. My friends are posted up hard in heaven. They danced around me as I paid my respects. This area produces insanely large moths too, like this one I spotted heading into a shower last summer.
