We were invited to spend a few days at the David Wally's 1862 Hot Springs Resort and Spa near Genoa. Scott and Lori had some timeshare points they wanted to use up, so they got a couple of rooms there and invited us to spend some time there with them. It was super nice to get out of town and super fun to just be with them. Our kids get along well with their kids, so it makes for a great time.

David Wally's Hot Springs Resort and Spa
This picture was just outside our room; I don't know the exact date for it, but it might be from the late 1800s or early 1900s. It shows the hot springs resort and the marshy area behind it. The short stone building in the middle of the picture is the only original building left, as a fire destroyed everything else back then.
This is the view from Scott and Lori's room, we were right at the base of the Sierra Nevada mountains, it was beautiful.
We went for a walk around the property.
This is a waterway around the back of the hotel, the water is green and smells like sulphur,
you can see the rings of movement in the water as bubbles come up from the bottom
fish are ok with swimming in this hot mineral water
on our walk, there were a few of these puddles where water bubbles up through the ground
you can't really see it here, but these little rocks were moving a lot cause water was pushing up through them.
bird feeding babies, there were four babies in this nest
The resort offered some activities, one of them was Bingo one afternoon.
