Advice to our visitors

Located at a 6000 ft. elevation, you can experience a fluctuation between day and night time temperatures.. We recommend some warm clothes for the night, rain gear for the occasional thunder storm and a pair of solid hiking boots. Light summer clothes are suitable for day time. A flashlight for your evening star gazing in the hydrothermal heated swimming pool or nightly gathering at the campfire is recommended.
