Stewart Mineral Springs - Hot Springs in the U.S.

12/16/2020

What do you think is the rare type of mineral springs in the United States?

I think that it is strongly alkaline slimy water.

Bottomless Crystal Geyser

Crystal Geyser is one of the most popular bottled mineral waters in both the U.S. and Japan.

Out of a few water sources, water at Weed, California is said to be tastier.

Crystal Geyser 1

The place is in the Mt. Shasta City Park.

Crystal Geyser 2

It was truly Crystal Geyser, as I brought the empty bottle of Crystal Geyser.

Sacred Slimy Water

It is a twenty-minute's drive from the park to Stewart Mineral Springs.

Gate

After entering the massive gate, there was a slope down to the Parks Creek.

Bridge 2

As the road was badly frozen at that time, I parked here, although the parking lot is across the creek.

Bridge 1

Lodging is available, while walk-ins are also welcomed.

Entrance

The walk-in fee is $35.00 for an adult.

Fireplace 2

It used to be clothing optional, but the rule changed in 2017.

Today coverage is required, including swimsuits or clothes provided.

Corridor 2

I was assigned one of private pools out of thirteen.

I was told that I could use it freely in 75 minutes.

Bathroom

The space is small enough to place a clawfoot tub.

Needless to say, clothing is optional after closing the door.

The Tub 2

In addition to the extremely cold mineral water gushing at 39 degrees F, heated water is also usable.

The Tub 3

I got so surprised when touching the water.

It was amazingly slimy.

The Tub 1

I was advised not to scratch my skin, as the water can be overstimulating.

Window

They also advised to alternately soak in the hot tub and cold creek.

Fireplace 1

Almost Near-death Experience

Passing in front of the fireplace, I finally went outside.

Terrace 1

The Parks Creek was flowing right under the terrace.

Terrace 2

Alpaca
Are you sure?
I feel regretful, already.
Capybara

Parks Creek 2

The riverside was totally frozen.

Despite my carefulness, I slipped out into the river.

Parks Creek 3

It was almost the near-death experience.

Parks Creek 1

I barely escaped alive and run inside into the sauna.

Corridor 1

Actually, I repeated such routine as I realized that it was comfortable.
