Ah yes... another lucid experience and memory from Deep Creek Hot Springs. I still remember my very first experience to the springs back in the mid 80's. Never having been there, I somehow missed the springs while hiking up the Pacific Crest Trail... hiked right on by them and up the canyon a ways. Not paying attention, I walked headlong into one of those prickly "yucca?" plants with all the long "daggers" arrainged in a ball of pain. One of those daggers punctured my thigh... down into the muscle about a quarter inch or so. Damn!

Hiking dejectedly back down the canyon, I stumbled into a guy walking up the beach after soaking in the Arizona pool. I found the legendary pools of DCHS! There's been many a trip back to the theraputic "Hot Pots" from all trails that lead there. It's been awhile since my last trip, as I no longer live in SoCal. But that's another story. Don't miss LA a bit, but sure do miss "mental health breaks" at Deep Creek.
