This Local Couple Found Love in a Unusual (and Hot) Place

Each week we ask a local couple, ”How did you meet?”

In our series How Did You Meet?, local couples tell us how they first hooked up. 

⁠Outdoor enthusiasts Hope and Jay met in a pretty peculiar place: a hot springs in Death Valley at 4 in the morning. ⁠

⁠”I was immediately attracted to him,” Hope admits. Although the feeling was mutual, it would take a year for them to make it official, which they did on a spontaneous trip to Oregon, where they spent five days cliff jumping and hot springing with a group of friends.⁠

Since, becoming a couple, the two globetrotters have spent a majority of their time traveling. “We just go anywhere and everywhere, adventuring at all times,” the couple says.
