Deep Creek Hot Springs
photos by Roger Klemm
A cluster of natural hot springs in an isolated canyon in the high desert. Requires a gradual 6-mile hike or a steeper 2-mile one. The Deep Creek Hot Springs are quite a find and will amaze you once you get there. Completely natural and undeveloped, the springs have become popular for obvious reasons. The water is generally clear and an almost perfect temperature (averaging 105 degrees F.), with several pools from which to choose.
We chose to keep our shorts on, but not everyone did. Freedom of choice is nice.
I spent most of my time climbing rocks and jumping into the COLD river that runs along the springs.
Thanks to Roger and Markus for inviting us!
