Mickey Hot Springs

Recreation Site - Oregon

Mickey Hot Springs is a moderately known geothermal area on the northern end of the Alvord Desert. Sometimes there is a plethora of geothermal activity here and sometimes it is mostly dried up, empty holes - all dependent on the season and recent rainfall. Nearly always, there is a colorful 15-20' diameter, over 10' deep, pool - clear with near-boiling water. If the time is right, the ground hisses with steam, releasing pressure from the same geologic fault that created Steens Mountain. Gurgling mud pots and small, glassy streams that heat to as much as 180 degrees are also in the area.
