Travertine Hot Springs
@maimfine
There are a couple of different pools around the area, but the one with the four main pools has only one that gets warm/hot. It has the most significant water trickle, so it makes sense why that is the hottest. If you walk past it down the trail you’ll find other little pools as well. I personally haven't been in any other pool other than the main one but have seen people in others! The photo of me in the red bikini - the pool to the left is the warm one.

 I personally didn't camp at Lower Virginia. I camped near Wild Willy's Hot Spring, but this was the spot I picked out if I wanted to stay there.

I recommend hitting Bodie Ghost Town on your way from South Lake Tahoe. During winter, getting to the ghost town can be dangerous, especially after snow. Ashely and I had to turn around because it wasn't safe.

Ma I’m Fine ~ A podcast dedicated to inspiring adventure and helping Mother Earth!​ . Hi! I'm Alexis, but you can call me Lex! I am a California native who loves wildly epic adventures. Welcome to Ma I'm Fine's Thatch Shop! Here, you can save or buy all my travel guides. . Ma I’m Fine came to life after moving back home from Australia, thinking the knowledge and experience I gained would help others wanting to travel and become an au pair. I also wanted to remember my adventures and never lose the intimate details of my trips. There’s nothing like being able to relive your most cherished memories. As I’m no longer an au pair and currently work for a criminal defense attorney and non-profit, you can find me either on a road trip with my rooftop tent or living that backpacker hostel life. . I have always loved the outdoors and truly fell in love with our planet after getting certified in Scuba Diving. My passion for helping Mother Earth intensified after watching the Netflix documentaries Seaspircy, Our Universe, and Life On Our Planet. I believe change comes from knowledge and emotion; these documentaries changed my perspective. I want to use MIF to educate, bring awareness, and create change in order to leave Mother Earth a better place. I donate a portion of my profits to different non-profits depending on their location. Thanks for being here!
