  2. Any search for a great hot spring should start with: http://hotspringsguy.com

    The blog is run by a hot spring aficionado. Aside from literally hundreds of hot springs ‘qualifications’, he has department of water quality (DEQ) watershed and geothermal energy training, and can actually tell you if a hot springs is ‘safe to soak’ – in addition to the history, social attitudes and accessibility information for almost any hot springs in the northwest. He has been featured in National Geographic Traveler and Sunset magazines as well as regional television segments for his environmental stewardship and constant advocacy for protecting public lands, roadless areas and hot springs.
