The Hot Spring:
Alkali Lake Hot Spring is another hot spring in the Hot Creek Geothermal Area named by the adjacent dry lake. The spring is visible from a paved and maintained road so even in snow it is accessible but also out in the open for the passing trucks. There is a single source of about 120 degree F water that is captured by as galvanized metal culvert stuck in the ground around the source. From the metal culvert a pvc pipe brings the water to a shallow 5 foot diameter pool dug into the ground and lined with concrete slabs. In spring 2007 the pvc pipe was plugged and the pool was dry, therefore not a soakable spot but with potential. According to other resources there was a bath tub next to the pool and when the piping worked both soaks were very hot.
