An Interview with Seabrook “Munko” Leaf about Big Bend Hot Springs

People have been asking when the hot springs on Hot Springs Road in Big Bend will open to the public again. Munko Leaf, a member of the management team explains how the work has progressed as well as plans for the future.

Over the past 100 years and more the hot springs have evolved. For memories sake, here are a few pictures I took in 2004:

This truly is a sacred place. I wish the Big Bend Hot Springs organization great success in their work and look forward to this place of wonder and bliss once again being open to the public. I encourage everyone to visit Big Bend Hot Springs Project to learn more.
