Hot Creek- California’s Gold (2006)
If you love to soak in really hot water and love the out of doors, you have to watch this show. Huell travels to the Eastern Sierra’s in search of a good place to have a soak. Hot Creek Geological Site is nestled in the Inyo National Forest close to the town of Mammoth Lakes. We take a ride out to the site with Debbie Nelson who is a Recreation Specialist for the forest.
Huell gets a first hand look at this beautiful spot with water boiling up from the ground which mixes with the cool water of Hot Creek and makes for some very nice swimming. We’ll even meet some die-hard soakers who come from all over California to enjoy the therapeutic water.
Check to make sure it is open to the public as of Jan. 2011 it is closed as the water is too hot due to geological activity.
