dirty socks
Dirty Socks
Dirty socks is an unusual name for an equally unusual swimming pool. Water from an Artesian well on Owens dry lake flows continuously into the pool. The name originated from the hanging socks of miners who came from the hills to wash. Inyo County maintains the pool (or doesn't) and adjoining camping and picknicking area. Dirty Socks is 5 miles east of Olancha, CA.
