Matt Bischoff lives in the foothills outside of Sacramento, California, with his wife, Patty, and son, Luke. He is a professional historian by trade, currently working for California State Parks. One of his greatest enjoyments is exploring God's creation and seeking out new hot springs. Often, the story surrounding the hot spring is just as interesting as the hot spring itself, as each one has its own unique history. The hot springs listed in this book are some of his favorites for a variety of different reasons. His hope is that you will find the same thrill in discovering a new hot spring or learning a little bit more about its story.
