On my day off in Hot Springs, formerly Warm Springs, I visited the spa – for $20 you spend an hour in a conventional hot tub filled with fresh “hot spring” curative water, looking over the French Broad River. This place has been in use since the Cherokee people recognized its unique value. I threw in a chocolate milkshake and I think I may have found a cure for shin splints
I’d love to come back here some time. Next town is Erwin, TN in 5 days or so – hope to get a few blog posts out between now and then.
