Trego Crossing from the Playa over the tracks. What is on the other side?
This is why you cross the tracks at Trego Crossing: to take a dip in Trego Ditch. Wonderful water with currents of hot and cool water. Best is all the mud at bottom that is clay-like and can be sculpted into lovely faces and such while lazing in the ditch.
The tin trough used by bathers at Double Hot Spring. The pipe brings water in from the way-too-hot spring and then we move it aside to let the tub cool down, adding more hot water as desired. Ahhhh.
Double Hot Spring near the Black Rock in BR Desert. This is where the dog jumped in and owner jumped after it - both were killed due to the hot water. Her husband tried to save her and was burned from the waist down. Now there is a warning sign. This is a HOT spring.
The Frog Pond on edge of Black Rock Desert Playa. You go on Memorial Day, it is occupado. Warm pond adjacent to Frog Pond, built by Burning Man folks. All you need is a tent and a burn barrel for warmth.
Dune and vegetation in the middle of the flat playa, forming around an underground spring - bubbling up in the middle. The area was fenced to keep ATV and other adventure riders from using it as a ramp.
C'est Moi in the Black Rock Hot Spring. I couldn't be happier.
