On our way north we decided to make a stop at Coaldale junction, west of Tonopah, NV, so we could go to Fish Lake Hot Springs. We found a lovely parking place near this motel.
The hot springs is actually south of Coaldale in the middle of nowhere. We had the coordinates, and I was surprised that the GPS wanted to take us the back way. But Phil likes back ways, so off we went. On the way we saw some Bighorn Sheep, 2 females and a baby.
I thought we'd have the place to ourselves so far off the road, but I was wrong.
Natural mineral water flows through the cement-lined pool at a rate of 50 gallons per minute. The temperature is perfect at 105 degrees.
The only bad thing was these horse flies. Boy, can they bite!
After the water flows through the cement pool, it goes through several more natural pools.
The coots like it -
And on the far side there were some American Avocets. I love their upturned bills.
We took a different back road back to our rigs, around the other side of the dry lake bed. I sure was happy to have the GPS.
The colors were amazing, and the road came out right by our rigs!
One more picture of my beautiful baby granddaughter, Asha. She sure does look happy with her Daddy.
