USA Hot Creek

  • Please log in or sign up for free to see the GPS coordinates & weather for this photo spot
As Mammoth Creek leaves the Sierra and flows east into the Long Valley Caldera it is joined by warmer water from geothermal springs at the Hot Creek State Fish Hatchery. From this confluence the stream is named Hot Creek, though its water temperature seldom exceeds 68 °F (20 °C) until it reaches Hot Creek Gorge, 8 miles (13 km) east of Mammoth Lakes. In the Hot Creek Gorge, numerous hot springs near and in the stream bed add hot water into the stream. Its mouth is at the confluence with the Owens River upstream from Crowley Lake

Photography Tips

Very nice view from above down to the river and as we can see with beautiful mountains as the backdrop. Suggest to come here during winter/spring as we can get the best combinations of snowy mountains and steamed coming out from the rivers
