Not all public lands have hot water, but in the west, especially in the basin and range region, there's a plethora of geothermal activity, which tends to lead to hot springs. Some hot springs are way too hot to soak in, but others are the perfect temperature or are set up so users can regulate the heat.
Importantly, be sure to stay safe, check the temp and acidity before you dip and keep pups and kids on a short leash until you know the water is safe-even in areas you have enjoyed before, geothermal activity can change causing sudden changes in temperature and acidity.
September 30, 2017 is National Public Lands Day. To celebrate this we are going to share images of public lands from our archives every day in September.

The Basin and Range Project
We love the Basin and Range region and work to promote appreciation and respect for the area. We encourage all users to learn about, play in and protect this amazing resource.
We currently focus primarily on issues in the Nevada region of the Basin and Range, but are looking to expand soon.
