Overview of a rare spring trip to
Juntura Hot Springs in southeast Oregon. I say rare because usually
rain and spring runoff make this area completely unavailable the
majority of the spring season. Video covers the highway
turnoff, drive into, river ford and hot springs pool.

No Soap, Shampoo or BIO-Soap/Shampoo
Allowed in Hot Springs! Avoid Being Fined!
Public hot springs are not bathing facilities
and do not have 'plumbing' like that of commercial, improved hot springs. Soap and shampoo (including biodegradable soap and shampoo) do not completely breakdown
naturally. This pollutes our water systems (ingested by fish, animals, humans)
at or near the source. This is also illegal in most wilderness and public lands areas.
