Photographer's Note

It must be one of life's greatest pleasures to soak in hotspring after full day of hard work. This tub was constructed by loggers many years back and is maintained by anyone who uses it. It is usually full of hot water and if the temperature falls below your desired level of comfort, just open the valve on the pipe! For most it is best to have water at 38-39˚C, but some like it hotter.
On my first day here I was looking around and admiring steep rocky cliff just behind the tub with all the ferns and other vegetation, when Richard (the one on this photo) nudged me and with a big grin (gesturing with his finger to be quiet) pointed to the road. Not more than 6-7 meters away from us a rather large black bear was methodically strolling along, not paying a slightest attention to our presence. 20 seconds later it disappeared in the forest.
I was wondering then, who was more relaxed: the bear or us? Alas, I didn't bring my camera...
