Hot Creek is a scenic wonderland containing dozens of natural hot springs bubbling up within the rocky walls of a river gorge and in the shadows of towering Eastern Sierra mountain peaks. It took many trips for me to find the just the right vantage point to capture the magnitude of the area to include the scope of this geological phenomenon. It is a breathtaking place where boiling, bubbling water rich in dissolved minerals emerges in turquoise pools rimmed by layers of travertine rock and shrouded in veils of steam. A short drive off Highway 395 and hike is all it takes to meander along trails that run alongside the creek.
