FarmWife says it wasn't like that at all—it was just a forest of beautiful ancient trees, scenic vistas over marvelous waterfalls, leisurely soaks in hot springwater, and evenings at a nice campsite full of delicious things to eat and cozy tents to sleep in.
Thanks, FarmWife, for easing my jealousy. (Not!)
They're back, anyway—unscathed, well soaked, and toting photos of a place I absolutely must visit one day. (Hock, mend thyself!)
P.S. If you're wondering, my hock is really looking great. I am still retired, but we hope I am retired sound.
