The Hot Spring:
Hot water emerges out of a crack in a bedrock cliff and flows into a couple sand and gravel pools at Moondipper Hot Spring. The upper pool is a mixing pool where the very hot 130 degree F water mixes with the cold water from Dash Creek and then flows into the lower pool. Move the rocks that block the cold water from Dash Creek to change the water temperature. The lower pool can fit a few soakers and is 1-2 feet deep (possibly deeper if dug out) with a sand and gravel bottom and rock walls. By mid summer the pools are usually land locked and can get too hot to soak, but if you are there when the water is right the view down the canyon is a wonderful backdrop to a good soak.
