Before heading into the area around Mammoth Lakes, we had a good idea of where the hot springs are. For the first night, we headed over to Wild Willies, a lot of the ones around here are free, including that one. We parked, and walked down. It’s a clay pool, with a gravel bottom, and a stream flowing into it. The closer you go to the stream, and the spring, the hotter it gets. We don’t know how hot the water is, but it’s probably around 100-105 degrees F.Now, it’s important that you remember that it’s kind of cold up here, we’re at around 6000 feet above sea level. It’s really very pretty, with the hot spring in a field, in the middle of a valley, with steam coming up off the water, and the mountain on both sides. It’s hard to explain so I’ll let you see for yourself.
And yes, another cool picture of the mountains.
