Ascent Trip Report

I was hiking with my son and daughter and we decided only to hike another kilometre beyond where the cold stream and hot spring stream converge, to a lookout. The weather was great and we could have continued to the summit, but it was a joint decision not to. Where the two streams of different temperatures converge, we put our feet in. Some hikers came with their swimwear and lay in the stream; it was like taking a hot bath !
