hot springs

Night is a wonderful time to be hanging out at the hot tubs at Wilbur hot springs.  The air is cool, the tubs warm and the naturally green water pool is so refreshing after soaking in the tubs.  To go back and forth beneath a clear sky as the moon rises in the east… just a little bit of heaven on Earth.

This is the spot.  The calling card for the Wilbur Hot Springs experience.  It’s the main draw for all who come here.  And believe me, it’s worth it.  The cold pool is invitingly green and natural.  The perfect place to submerge into after soaking in the warm or hot mineral waters in the bath house.  So inviting, so relaxing.  Ahhh.

I had heard about this hot springs but never taken the time to seek it out.  So, this time I was determined to slow down and find it.  Easy!  No problem!  I stayed in the town of Bridgeport while up in the Sierra mountains so it was a no brainer.  It’s almost right in town; less than a mile from the center of the small mountain town.  Ahhh….  It’s truly a great spot.  And the pools that were created for the warm underground water… well, a perfect spot for viewing the grandeur of the Sierra mountains while soaking in the warm water.

Wilbur is for those of us who like slowwww….. and soothing, healing, natural hot mineral springs.  And who like seclusion and the natural world and who aren’t offended by naked bodies and who are willing to allow themselves to slow down.  That alone seems to be an art in today’s chaotically fast pace.  For some, just the attempt at slowing down and being without computer/TV/cell phone can bring up a deep anxiety, let alone actually coming to some kind of peace over a few days of slow and quiet.  Yes, Wilbur is purposefully slow and quiet, with a large well stocked communal kitchen where you can prepare your own nourishing meals.  And if that meal is after a soothing, calming soak in the hot tubs, interspersed by a dip/swim in the cool, naturally green pool that waits just outside the tubs, and if it’s dark, and the stars are out….  Well, you’ll just have to try it yourself.
