Benton Hot Springs, E Sierra
Baja California Hot Springs Camping
California's mountains and coastline make up a good portion of the Pacific Ring of Fire . With that comes volcanoes, earthquakes as 2 major techtonic plates are pushing together, and hot magma which heats the earths water and forces its way up the surface. Hot mineral waters, bubbling up from the earth's crust, are found in the deserts, mountains and coastal regions of California.
Some springs are capped to provide geothermal energy in places like Imperial Co. Resort style hotels in the Palm Springs desert, small rustic camps in the mountains, health centers on the Central Coast, every one of these has its unique setting and pure, natural ambience.
Many are primitive hot tubs scattered throughout the California mountains. Relaxing outside under the starry night sky, soaking your worries away and connecting with the earth. There is nothing quite like your first hot springs experience.
