Fish Lake Hot Springs

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.


  1. Ooh she is so cute & by golly she's smiling...

  2. Nice hotel. A couple stars down from 'fleabag'.

    That's one cute grandbaby! Just crossed into Idaho. See you soon!

  3. Interesting to compare the American avocets with their European cousins.

  4. Asha looks SOOO content! What a cutie.

  5. What a sweet pic of your new Granddaughter and her Daddy!! You must be so proud.

  6. LOVE IT! The only thing out shinning those Avocets is little Asha!

  7. That is the cutest daddy/baby picture ever! :)

  8. I think 105 degrees would be too hot for me, but you go, Girl! And speaking of girls, how adorable is my great niece? Mark is sure a proud papa.

  9. Yep, I see you spending a lot more time back East. How can you stand not being able to hold that adorable granddaughter? I think that is one of the most beautiful pictures you ever put on your blog, your son and his daughter. :c)

  10. Beautiful baby! Funny how when you're way out in the "boonies" so is everyone else!


I love comments!
