Overview

Over 250 hot springs and soda pop springs are detailed in this classic book, completely updated for 2010. Filled with enticing pictures, easy to follow maps, GPS coordinates, historical information and current status, this book is a must have for any hot spring enthusiast. Whether you are looking to find privacy in a remote wilderness spring or be pampered in a five star resort, Hot Springs of Western Washington will help you find the way to your hot spring bliss.

Originally printed in 1985, this was the first book in print about hot springs in Washington. Updated in 2010 with current information and many new color pictures it is the guide book you must have if you want to explore and discover the hot springs of the "evergreen state."

In addition to the heavenly hot springs, this is still the only book available that guides you to the location of the natural soda pop springs in Washington. Bottle your own naturally carbonated water as it bubbles out of the mountains. Add some flavoring of your choice when you get home and you have pioneer soda pop! Or chill it in the fridge overnight and enjoy delicious sparkling water the next day.

Like the hot springs and soda pop springs this book reveals, the book itself is a treat!

Editorial Reviews

Jane Shannon
This book was such a pleasure to discover. After reading it I realized it was actually the first book ever written on hot springs in Western Washington. I have purchased others and comparing them this one is by far the best for information and maps, especially if you are looking to visit wilderness springs rather than easy to access but overcrowded popular springs. A lot of new information must have been added in the current edition as most springs seem to have up-to date info as of 2010.

I really enjoyed Hot Springs of Western Washington. The information on the springs was complete and interesting. The maps were novel, hand-drawn and detailed. There were many good pictures and the color ones make me want to go there for sure! I felt like jumping into the pictures. I do all my hiking with a hand-held GPS now whenever I'm going someplace new, so I appreciated the GPS coordinates for almost all of the springs.

I also had the same problem with the Kindle for the PC not ope

Let's face it Washington summers are really short and cool, especially if you are up in the mountains. I use this book whenever I plan a hike to warm me at hikes end or along the way. There are so many hot springs detailed in this book it is seldom a hike that I cannot include a soak in a soothing hot spring at the end or in route. The more it gets into the cold and rainy months the more I like this book and the knowledge that there is almost always a hot spring on some part of my hike. Sometime

I bought the hikers paperback version back in the 1980's and it opened up a new world to me as I visited many of the hot springs in the book. At the time it was information that was available from no other source. I know because looked. The new 2010 Kindle version has many updates of pictures and info when I compare it to my well-worn paperback copy.

Besides having clear, concise maps and wonderful pictures, I enjoy the many unusual parts included for some springs that you simply never

This guide is entertaining and informative, particularly in its attention to the ruggedness, appropriateness, etc. of each hot spring. I recommend this to anyone wandering around Washington!
