North of Spencer Hot Springs, Nevada
Nevada

This is one of the hot tubs in the vicinity of the main springs at Spencer Hot springs, Nevada.  Spencer Hot springs is located about 12 miles east of Austin Nevada.

When I arrived at Spencer Hot Springs, I just headed to where I saw the RV's.  Later at home I realized that I didn't even make it to the main springs at Spencers Hot Springs but just to this soaking tub to the north.

Talking to someone there I learned that it's a job cleaning out the tub and can take upwards to 8 hours to complete.  Part of the problem is the high tempature of the water coming out of the valve (which can be completely shut off).  I would guess that it is at least 150 degrees or hotter.  After cleaning and refilling the tub, the water is left to cool down to around 100 which takes several hours...

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
