Glad you found some Freedom Calidev.
Mohave, in your original post you asked if there are any restrictions at the lower parking lot. The only restriction I know of is you may only camp there for 15 days before you must move one mile from your original camp. Sounds like you are too busy to camp there that long. As I said earlier that area is under B.L.M. control and that is their rules. The National Forest does not start till just before you get to where the Hunter's camp intersects with the Goat trail. Probably 2 or 3 hundred yards before. On the map I could spot the boundry marker and put an east/west line. If I knew how ?
Perhaps some one here can do that. The east/west line would be just a tad above the green B marker near the Freedom trail. Between 10 or 20 feet on the ground above the top edge of the Green B marker.
Went to the spings yesterday. It was another weather perfect day. Well maybe a little on the hot side @ noon. I got to the Freedom trail at 9;30 am. There was no wind what so ever. There was a truck a car and a van parked there. I knew it was going to be a good trip when I first pulled out of my driveway a very large roadrunner bird hopped out in the road in front of my car. He ran in front for @ 40 or 50 yards. I suppose he was trying to hitch a ride to the hot springs w/me. Anyway it is strange and unusual to hike all the way to the springs with no wind at all. So when I got to the spring there were 2 couples who had camped there and a female long time regular relaxing as best they knew how. I went around and collected the trash witch every one knew nothing about HOW it got there. The worst trash was about 50 shardes of glass between the Womb pool and the Serinity pool. The camper thought they had picked it up at @ 2 am. But were mistaken. I found 3 ice boxes and 2 empty bags of wine and 3 wine boxes. #(*!^$)[email protected]& I think that is how to spell how I felt while pileing all of this up.
It was good to see where someone had picked up almost all of the trash at the big boulder on the beach across from the springs. So A great BIG THANK YOU TO WHO EVER !
There was never more than 20 persons at the springs. Almost all were naked. It was very nice to listen to the water sounds until the campers discovered the speakers hooked up androidphone. It was cool as a drummer added to the beat of some cool tunes. Spent a lot of time with my googles swimming around looking at the bottom of the creek. I found a large rum bottle, a large summer hat, @ 5 beer cans,a pair of suglasses and a deflated float.
Everyone was having fun relaxing at deep creek with no problems I could detect. Except the one guy complaining about his hang over. We could all relate to thaat !
Days like yesterday are why I keep going back ;~)
