Visited on September 12, 2016. Tub is operational, full and pleasantly warm. It was warmer than The Rock Tub. The odd shape of the pool walls was interesting, making it fun to seek out a place to sit.
There were two nearby springs, complete with mud mounds and steam rising.
Mix of clothing and nakedness.
Slippery with algae.
Visited on September 12, 2016. Congenial company, spectacular views, and a well-constructed and generously sized pool. Downsides: a stiff breeze that often blew dirt and dust into our faces, a small amount of litter, and a very slick coating of algae on the bottom. Yes, I slipped and landed in somebody's lap. He took it in stride!
This pool seems to be a favorite, and well known. It's easy to get to, and thoughtful folks have added bits of carpet and doormats to make it more comfortable to get in and out.
Watch out for LOTS of cow pies around the tub.
Well constructed raised walking path, and lovely, thick raw planks on sturdy footing make it a breeze to get to the tub.
While I was there, everyone was wearing clothing of some sort.
Visited on September 12, 2016. Tub is empty, with only a trickle of water flow. Valve handle tab is broken. A short walk to the source spring revealed the spring is virtually dry.
The source spring is visible through a broken grating set in a concrete pad. Area is still lovely, with bucolic cows grazing nearby. Watch for cow pies!
Visited on September 12, 2016. Fill pipe now extends into the water. Comfortably warm. Still a beautiful view!
