Southeastern Oregon is an often overlooked region of our beautiful country. It's easy to see why: sparsely populated, endless dry hills, seemingly nothing. But we're here to tell you that there is SO.MUCH.MORE!

Tucked away into a remote corner of the Beaver State are some mysterious hot springs and they're just begging for you to get your soak on!

Now, this isn't a glamorous place. We'll leave that to the fancy, commercial springs. This is a remote and rugged area on the less visited side of the Steen Mountain Range. But it's beauty is truly unparalleled and it makes for one hell of a weekend getaway!

Join Bold Betties Eugene and Bold Betties Boise for a fun sister chapter weekend at Alvord Hot Springs!

We'll pack everything we need and head out Friday morning from our respective locations. We'll help arrange carpools and if some people need to leave later, we'll help you get your plans sorted out! The drive itself is stunningly beautiful, and with a few Bold Betties in your car, you're bound to have a great time! Carpool Karaoke anyone?

Once we arrive, we'll work together to get our very unique accommodations in order. That's right, y'all. We're staying in....MASH UNITS!

MASH stands for: Mobile Army Surgical Hospitals

These units have been refurbished with beds and heaters and make for incredibly fun places to camp! There is a roof and four walls and a big heavy door! With a big picture window facing east over the dry lake bed, you'll wake up to the amazing sunrises with a smile on your face!

The goal of this weekend is to relax and spend some time together! So expect to do a lot of hot springs soaking!
