DAY #189

Another super-terrific day at the campsite. the weather was just about perfect and I was enjoying it immensely. Quite a few more campers than during the week but except for the screams of a few kids (and hey, kids will be kids), it still remains a splendid place to hang out.

I just marvel at the size of these trees. These lucky kids have escaped the ax and chainsaw and have grown to be magnificent examples of all they can be.

I wanted to head over and check out the warm springs treatment pool that FDR used after contracting polio, finishing up my Roosevelt experience.

How the pools originally looked.
This first pool was originally covered by a glass roof.
View from the middle pool.
The spring that would fill the pool with 88 degree water.
The far pool
The changing room/
An iron lung. Not related to the pool but a device that many polio victims were all too familiar with.

It was an interesting place to visit. You need to let your imagination loose but once you do, you can envision what the pool was like in the day.

I think spring is fast becoming my favorite season.

A couple of photos taken from the area on the trip back to the campground.

Another full and satisfying day in the book, I can’t say it enough, I’m a fortunate guy..
