Long Valley Caldera. The region is alive with geothermal activity, as recent lava domes and flows, and active hot springs and fumaroles will attest.

|The source of the spring; the water flowing from this rock was extremely hot!|

If you visit, please, please, please respect the springs and the surrounding area.
It is a privilege to still be able to visit places like this in California.
Practice "leave no trace;" pack out what you pack in; leave the springs even better than you found them.
