Emerald Chasm, Washington, USA As soon as I saw this pool I knew it was one of those magic spots. It was quite a difficult climb to get to the location. We basically had to follow a stream and clamber up many different levels until we finally reached the source of the waterfall.
Accessible all year round, Umpqua Hot Springs – which is also sometimes known as Toketee Hot Springs – features three gorgeous hot pools located in breathtaking scenery above the North Umpqua River. The view of Surprise Falls from the relaxing pools is simply unforgettable and the springs are found by taking the Umpqua Hot Springs Trail, which is a very short hike. Take note that clothing is optional at Umpqua Hot Springs,
