The Hot Spring:
Dixie Valley Hot Springs are several small but very hot seeps on the desert floor in Dixie Valley. The hot seeps all flow away from the dirt road into the desert forming Dixie Meadows which supports some bird life. At the sources the water temperature varies from 130 to 150 degrees F and they are surrounded by a BLM barb wire fence (probably to protect local cattle). Away from the sources there are some areas that look like someone might have dug out a little soaking pool but they were all over grown with brush and very silty. Soaking really does not seem like an option here without a lot of work but its cool to see a geothermal spot that is creating its own little ecosystem.
