Vischy Hot Springs     We were able to get away for a couple of days to Vischy Hot Springs in Ukiah…nice place! Even got a mention (in 1994) in the NY Times as a vacation spot for Mark Twain and Jack London. Yeah, it was rustic and the tubs were made out of stone, plus it was below freezing at night, but that all made it better. We went for an early morning soak after breakfast and the carbonated waters really did give off bubbles and put us into a good mood. It was pricy, but was worth it for the quiet, the calm, and no tv’s in the rooms.

     One of the questions people asked about the trip was “how can you become relaxed in only one night?”  Well, without lights at night, no tv, no computer, and nowhere to go the next day, I find I sleep pretty well.
