The Gaviota "hot springs" is an interesting place with a wall built around the main pool and rocks around some smaller pools. More of a mineral spring with lukewarm water than a hot spring. Lush plants like blackberry and poison oak growing around the creek and lots of flies and insects. I wasn't interesting in getting into the water. (2022-04-07). Photo by Christopher "Neo" L.
