Cold day at Hot Springs

Yesterday I went to Hot Springs, one of my favorite cities in the state, to watch some high school basketball. Summit Arena in Hot Springs was hosting the state high school basketball finals, which included a game between the Charleston Lady Tigers and the Valley Springs Lady Tigers. I went there to cheer for Charleston, who ended up narrowly winning the game 41-40.

But before the game there was some free time to explore Hot Springs. It was just barely above freezing, with a light rain. The steam from the springs was billowing out from the display springs and fountains along Bathhouse Row, but ice was sticking to the trees along the hills ringing the city. We drove up one of the roads that steeply curves above the National Park, which were coated in a sheen of ice.

Luckily the ice wasn't sticking to the roads, probably because it was about 70 degrees here a few days before. But it was a neat sight to drive through...

I love the ice picture. At least you got awesome pictures going to see a game for people you don't know. :-)

Do you think Big Dam Bridge will have green lights for St. Patrick's Day?

I didn't get any pictures of the basketball game, but at least I got something out of it. Hot Springs is a really great city, I love taking pictures there. You got some good shots from there too.
