Back in the early 80's there was a old guy living at Steam Wells down by Red Mountain. If I remember correctly, he had only one arm, and wasn't too friendly until one produced a 6 pack. Then of course you could use the hot springs. We had only been there once way back when. Anyway, a few months ago, we found ourselves in the Red Mountain area, and decided to go look and see if there was anything left at the camp this guy had. When we were there back in the 80's, he had built a cinder block building around the spring, and a few other out buildings along with a trailer he was living in. Never did find it. But I also noticed 99% of all the roads in that area were marked with the dreaded BLM red sign of death. Does anyone here know if the spring is still accessible? If so, is there anything left of the old guys "improvements"?
