Keough Hot Springs

Earlier this year I read about Keough Hot Springs on Van Tramp’s blog, so yesterday morning we decided to check it out.

The public springs are located just south of Bishop on a dirt road off of Keough Hot Springs Road. There was only one other person there when we arrived and he was down the way from where we got in. The water was bath temperature and very clean.

The only thing that kind of creeped me out was the power lines above us that made loud crackling noises and made you feel like you could be electrocuted. Otherwise we loved it!

Dinner Last Night:
Veggie Fajitas. I inadvertently planned a Mexican dinner on Cinco de Mayo. I usually use the fajita spice mix from Penzey’s Spices, but decided to try this recipe. I cut the portions in half and still had left-overs. I also didn’t use the food processor on the beans or the guac, just mashed everything with a fork. It turned out great.

    That spot looks incredible! It’s funny how we seem to be on the same path with recipes. Just yesterday I marked this fajita dish down to make later this week. Sounds like it makes a lot so we’ll get to have leftovers- yum!

      It’s because we read the same food blogs! (and have the same taste in cooking…I love that about you!)

    I’m glad you made it guys. It is a certain stop for me every time I pass up or down 395.

    How do you manage to have all the right ingredients? It always seems like I am missing something.

      Hi Nan!

      I make the menu for the week before we go shopping. I also try and pick recipes based on the type of grocery store I’m expecting.
