TECOPA HOT SPRINGS (photo)


Find a natural hot spring by accident
and then slip into the pools accidentally on purpose.
(It was legal). Warm water oozing from cracks
between rocks and bentonite clay fringed with tule reeds.
Remember that this stretch was once the Amargosa
when it was a mighty river. Now a relic of Tecopa Lake
on the Old Spanish Trail in the middle of the Mojave Desert.
Call it a ten out of ten on the bucket list.
