This might be my favorite spot on the trail thus far: natural hot springs near mile 310.
This deeper, cooler pool is home to lots of fish who kept trying to crew on my legs.

Did I mention that the hot springs are clothing optional? I opted for clothing.
This pool is 108 degrees. I ended up spending six hours at the hot springs. And I still managed to hike 20 miles that day!
