Umpqua Hot Springs

Way out in the back of beyond, or so I thought, when suddenly, around a bend: hippie buses, topless pregnant chick with a bone through her nose, yak-herder-hat guys strumming ukuleles, back-to-the-land family with berserk naked toddlers and leashed rotties, leathery WSB clone, Brother Bear, huge overflowing pile of empties crusted with candle wax & etc.  I'm fine with being naked with strangers in public, but, fuck this.  I spun gravel and reversed a ways down the road.  A short list, in no particular order, of non-healing-water-related reasons to visit a hot spring, available at the link, really captures the congealed-fat-of-the-60s vibe of this otherwise beautiful place, and I recommend it to you.
