Highroller48: How is it that people are still finding thses things "mysterious"?
Elvis_Bogart: So what happens now? Does that spring eventually pop up somewhere else or will it build up pressure until it pops like a pimple? It would really suck if it just runs into a deep crevasse never to see the light of day again.
AbbeySomeone: Here is more info on hotsprings. The Pacific NW has many thanks to the volcanic activity.Link Ring of Fire and all.
orbister: FTFA: "It's a very culturally significant site - even today Haida people would go down to take advantage of healing properties of the springs," said Ernie Gladstone, a field unit superintendent for Gwaii Haanas National Park, of which Hot Spring Island is a part. ... The area surrounding the hot springs is largely uninhabited, although it is near SGang Gwaay llnagaay, a Haida village of 300 that was abandoned in the 1880s following a devastating smallpox epidemic.That's one thing they don't seem to cure, then.

Egoy3k: I think the word you are looking for is hippie not hipster.
JasonOfOrillia: Great Algonquian spirits have made it to the West coast? That is interesting.
DecemberNitro: Can we please issue a moratorium on the term "hipster"? Fark clearly has no clue as to what a hipster actually is.
douchebag/hater: Other than being a primitive hot tub there are no health benefits from soaking in hot springs regardless of what First Nation people might think.I'm constantly struck by the hypocracy of Farkers who rail against Christianity but give every other religion a 'pass' on their asinine ideas including Indian/Native American/First Nation/Aboriginal ones.
amindtat: ♪♫ We come from the land of the ice and snow, from the midnight sun where the hot springs... ♪♫.....oh :(
