Shepherd hot springs all to myself. Have you guys ever been to the Easter Sierra? The Sierras are a diverse, beautiful mountain range in California. Their name (Sierra Nevada) means “snowy mountains” and is aptly named most of the time (this year’s been a bit slow with that snow but above 10,000 feet there is a good amount). Tectonic plate movement, volcanic activity, and historic glaciers created these beauties. Beyond them stretch their sister mountain range the White Mountains (seen in this photo). Between these two great ranges are countless natural hot springs. Most are free and open to the public. Some, like this one, have man assisted pools which enable peaceful soaking all year long. I was lucky to have this one all to myself for an hour or so. What’s your favorite hot springs in California?

 

Enjoy my adventures?
