The hot springs tour is back on!

There are a bunch of hot springs sprinkled along the east side of the Sierras. Thank you geologic activity. This morning, Travertine Hot Spring near Bridgeport, California, kicked of the second leg of the RST Hot Springs Tour.

I didn't take this photo. There were other people in the spring, so it would have been uncool to take a picture.

Yes, that's an outcropping of travertine marble. The hottest pool was very hot today, but there are several pools, each less hot than the other.

There's a ranger station on US395 on the south side of Bridgeport. Turn east on the road just north of the ranger station. Continue on the dirt road marked with an official sign. Part of the road requires some adventurous driving.

  1. Ahhh, now this looks fabulous. I'm still enjoying Oregon, but missing the 395 hot springs. Maybe I'll get there this fall.
