Buckeye hot springs (California)

Steaming hot water showers down a small cliff with colorful concretions, and fills up a series of pools in the bed of a creek.­

It is one of the best primitive hot springs in the Eastern Sierra, but it can be crowded in Summer.­ Note that sometimes in the Spring, the river may be to high and can fill-up the pools with cold water.­

In Fall and Winter, very few people use it, so it is the best time to enjoy it by yourself.­
