Here's a quote from his review of the Hot Springs (http://travel.roughguides.com/planning/journalEntryActivity.asp?JournalID=28820&EntryID=34159):

Quote from: "RoughGuides.com"
The trick is to visit late at night, or early EARLY in the morning before sunrise. I usually drive to Big Bend overnight, arriving around 3 or 4am, and lounge naked in the hot spring water, waiting for the sun to rise over Mexico. It always does, and it's always spectacular.

From their description of Dog Canyon-Devil's Den circuit:

Quote
According to park personnel, this circuit is hiked by only one or two parties a year. That's a shame. It's SPECTACULAR!


If find that hard to believe, but if true, I guess I was one of the two parties who hiked it in 2002.
