Oscar's Hot Springs pages

Up to my neck in hot water and loving it, at one of my favorite places, Valley View Hot Springs in Colorado (in its large waist-deep, body-temperature, "party pool")

I have visited more than seven dozen hot springs, most of them on several trips out West (where the best hot springs are), since I first took up hot springing on a road trip to Alaska in summer 1994. It's fun relaxing in a pool fed by natural, non-chlorinated, hot water -- especially in a natural hot tub at the end of a vigorous hike (the "price of admission" for many of the nicest hot springs).

I'm not exactly an authority on this subject. I live in Virginia, which is on the wrong side of the country for a hot springer, and so I can't visit hot springs as often as I'd like. (I've met truly serious -- maybe fanatical -- hot springers who say they're visited hundreds, or even thousands, of springs!) What I do know, much of it you'll find by following these links:
