State of Nevada
People have sought after and loved a good soak for centuries. Many Nevada hot springs are in a natural pool, old bathtub, or, in classic Nevada style, a “cowboy tub”—AKA a reimagined, upcycled cattle trough—with water flowing or piped into it from a nearby source. If that’s a little too backcountry for ya, there are softer places to land—think resort hot springs 从适合孩子的游泳池到与健康治疗相结合的豪华水疗度假.
但如果你宁愿去野外，也不愿去温和的地方，那就是内华达州的天然温泉. It’s a whole subculture begging to be explored, but you gotta know a thing or two before you ease in with both feet. 为了确保你们在70570威尼斯城官网所珍爱的沙漠温泉的体验是一样的满足和恢复性的, but—more importantly—also respectful and responsible, we’ve got a few tips before you head out. 了解一下这个方便的温泉怎么走，然后出去把脚趾伸进去.
Hot Springs How-To
Know Before You Soak
Google Maps Ain’t Gonna Cut It. In rural Nevada, 谷歌地图就像在黑石沙漠的Playa上安装完整的水肺一样方便. Spring for a topo map or even better, invest in a super-detailed atlas and get down on some good, old-fashioned navigating.
Travel Nevada Pro Tip
Live by the Buddy System. Heading out for the weekend? 让一个朋友知道你要去内华达州的哪个地区，这是个聪明的主意。当你在探索未知的领域时，为了公司和安全，带朋友一起去总是个好主意。.
Grab the Right Garments. 许多内华达温泉周围都是浑浊的碱面，你不能在上面开车. 打猎时，无论天气如何，都要计划把车停在很远的地方. It’s smart to pack a pair of shoes that you’re not afraid to get messy in. Another foolproof trick? Bring a cozy après-soak robe, outfit, or even a spare swimsuit (if that’s your thing), because who wants to spring-hop in wet clothes?
What Dress Code? It’s normal to rock up to a spring and find everyone in suits—of the swim or birthday variety. While there is no set rule, respect and courtesy go a long way. Don’t worry; if you find a tub full of bare-it-all bathers, no one will make you “follow suit.但同样地，如果你在一场衬衫和短裤的大会上穿得不怎么得体，你也要衡量一下这个群体. They should be OK with you strippin’ down, but you may want to ask politely, or at least slip in discreetly. 就像在你的余生里一样，不要做一个怪人，每个人都应该拥有美好的时光.
Travel Nevada Pro Tip
Don’t Put Yourself in the Hot Seat. Things can change fast out here, including thermal activity, so always check the temperature before hopping in. Done tubbing? If there’s a valve to control flow, leave a trickle—not a raging torrent—to keep the water primed for its next guests. And with extremely hot pools often nearby, be sure to keep close tabs on your pups, too, especially if you’re camping overnight.
Don’t Get Too In-Tents. Park your tents, vans, 还有其他远离春天的睡眠容器这样露营地就不会占据你的视线, hijack the spring’s ambiance, or scare off any local critters who rely on it as a life source. Private property? Camping is frowned upon without permission or a sign that says you can. Campfires are fun, but be aware of all local restrictions and NEVER leave one smoldering; make sure that bad boy is drowned out before you hit the sack or the road.
Leave It How You Found It. Being a good steward is what hot springing is all about. There are phenomenal hot springs on private land, 很多内华达州的农场主让人们享受他们的土地只要他们不把土地糟蹋. If the gate on the road is open, leave it open. If you found the gate closed, close the gate once you’ve passed through. 当然，任何你装进去的东西（或者碰巧发现不应该装进去的东西）都要装出来.
