We like to stop at McCredie Hot Springs near Oakridge to take a look at what is going on, as Cary takes a smoke break. He is thinking about quitting smoking. I hope that he doesn't become one of those guys who won't pull over anymore when that happens.
The Salt Creek is still high, and has flooded out most of the area for now. To the immediate right is the main pool, but there were three naked guys in there and they saw me with my camera. They were very close by, and I felt that it wouldn't be very sporting of me to take their pictures and put them on here. You could just see too much. However, it looks like somebody had been working hard on the pool. It was clear instead of muddy, and it looked a lot deeper than before. There was also a big fire pit built up, which was also new. The main problem with this hot springs is that people leave their garbage all over. The other problem with it, is that even though it is very convenient to the road, there is not much privacy.
Here is a link to a previous blog post on these hot springs, if you would like to see more pictures (you can click on the pictures to make them larger): McCredie Hot Springs
right there at the covered bridge.
There was this cute little stream, ready to be photographed.
