Wow, I meant to post about people jumping at the hot springs and never got around to it.
I feel horrible for the injury to this lady, no one needs to get hurt, but I have to share our latest experiene.
We were on the Upper C on Sunday Aug 21st, taking the in laws out for their first Upper C trip, with my family as well. We stopped at the hot springs for the first time in year, it was just 6 of us and there was a gentleman relaxing there as well who had hiked in.
We had not been there 5 minutes ( I hadn't even opened my beer yet) and a group of 5 rafts pulled up with 4 dogs (who didn't listen to their owners) and they were loud as can be. As soon as they got there, they began jumping off the high rocks to the side of the springs. We enjoy others on the river, but not when they're all cheering for each other and yelling at their dogs in unison. We left immediately and continued on for a peaceful rest of our float.
So my question is, when did this become the place to jump? Why not jump across the river 100 feet down on river right, where is has been tested for depth and ALL the rafting companies use with their guests?
We love the river, but everyone needs to respect each other
