Since we had so much fun the first time at the Remington Hot Springs along the Kern River we decided to head out there again for a second time. Yup. Two times in a row, but this time we didn’t forget to bring the camera. We took the (aprox.) 4 hour drive out to the Kern for a day of soaking in one of the coolest places to soak at.
When we got there the hot tubs only had a few people soaking for about an hour or so until we had the place to ourselves. We soaked all day long and met tons of people that came and went throughout the day. The river level rose a little bit from the last time we were there but all the tubs were still above the water and weren’t submerged from the overflowing river just yet. We met some interesting people on this trip from Asian tourists, to hitchhiking “free spirited” bums stuck in 1970, to nudist families, to the locals that show up everyday.
The tubs were in good shape but once the locals came to party at the tubs they didn’t think the cleanliness of the pools were up to their standards so they began to drain each pool individually so they could scrub them to death in order to soak in some crystal clear (not like it wasn’t clear enough before) water.
We left around dusk once the crowds started to show up. Every tub was full of people around this time so we thought it would be a good time to bail. We won’t be back until next winter because the summer crowds here suck and who wants to party with screaming babies and trash that consumes the place from people that don’t give two shits about mother nature. Once winter hits, we’ll be back for some more hardcore soaking.
Don’t forget to peep the pictures below as well as the video edit we made. This was our first time using a new camera we had just bought so we are still learning how t ouse all the HD settings. Don’t forget to watch it in HD!
