Jacumba Hot Springs sign and pulled up.
Next we were ready for some hot springs. Natural sulphur hot spring water is piped into one large hot tub and 2 lukewarm pools. After paying for our day pass ($15 each), we were shown where everything was. We went out to a room made of metal siding. We ducked into some changing rooms, got into our bathing suits, and eased into the hot tub. This area was great. The ceiling was rusty, the paintings of the Spanish Armada on the walls were completely warped from the humidity, and the cement was rough from mineral deterioration. A great wicker chair from the 70's was in the corner, most of its canes breaking and brittle. A local man talked our ears off about hunting, auctions, and politics. I mainly floated around while Jim entertained his conversation.
