I parked in the freedom trail head parking area a few minuets before noon which was a Friday. When I got there I was shocked by all the trash that has accumulated since I was here last. I spent 30 minuets picking up trash and removing a fire pit some one had built there. Looking at the Bowen ranch it appeared the parking area there was full. There were 2 cars and a pick up truck at the freedom trail head. When I left my house near Hesperia I noticed clouds over the Cajon pass area. In the high desert we were blessed with sunshine and great weather. When I jogged to the springs some friends had a cold beer waiting for me, it is very nice to have friends like that ;~)
It seemed like I only had 2 beers when I started soaking. I noticed a large amount of dead algae had accumulated in the Serenity pool so I got my hose out and removed it. Then I noticed the same in the Anniversary pool so I got that out too. While using my water goggles to search the bottom of the Womb pool I found half a pair of sun glasses a empty beer can and condom ugh !!!
All evening at the springs there were never more than 30 persons present at one time. Every one I saw and met were having a great time until just as the sun started to make the shadows grow a huge dog fight broke out. When I got there one dog had a big hole near his butt area with blood gushing out while the other dog was bleeding profusely from his eyeball area. As this played out most persons were packing up to leave. As I did also I noticed @ 10 persons were camping. As I headed up the trail several others mostly young hot springer's were coming down the trail with large back packs and such.
I laid out in the parking area searching the sky for the supposedly certain meteor showers and never saw even one before I went to dream land. At 2 am the next morning I woke up for another look and only saw 2 short fast streaks before I returned to dream land.
I arrived back at the springs as the sun started to shine in the sky somewhere. When I got there I had the place to myself for almost 1hour. First thing I did was pick up the debris from the night before. Not as bad as other times. I found less than 20 gallons in my trash when I finished. I also found a bottle of Capt. Morgan spiced rum. It appeared some body had taken one shot and left their bottle near the womb pool. That must have been some goood RUM.
I also found 2 lighters, some plastic pipes an almost full pack of cigarettes and some clothes. I found some medical cannabis in a pill bottle which I was considering offering up to the fish. As I contemplated my actions a young mountain man came around the rocks wanting to know IF i had seen his medicine ? So of course, I am NOT one to take medicine from a sick person, I promptly returned his medicine. Which had a very pleasant smell.
Saturday was terrific. Probably not more than 50 person at one time. Mostly new tourist with a lot of the regulars. Once again the weather does not get better than this. I spent a lot of time in the shower, swinging on the rope swing and enjoying some RUM. OH ! And enjoying the company of friends. That is what i enjoy the most about the creek,,, the comradery. Saturday at the springs was GREAT !!!
The Rum must have done something to my internal clock. I fell asleep as soon as I laid down. I woke up at 4 am. I knew it was wrong but I contemplated going to the springs before sun rise because I could not go back too sleep.
Sunday was another weather perfect day. The creek water reminds us of the time of year it is. To soak in the pools as long as possible then jump into the creek gives a person a sensation you get nowhere else. Trash I did look for any trash Sunday nor did I see any as another group of volunteers were picking it up as I arrived. A great big THANK YOU to you good hot springer's, you know who you are. Like I said my timer was still off as I took a long nap upon the rocks. When I woke up some of the most beautiful women in the world were soaking below me. Where else does one experience the things such as this ???
Only at Deep Creek.
