The “Mother Spring” holds the Guinness World Record for The World’s Deepest Geothermal Hot Spring. Measured in 2011, the plumb line reached 1002 feet, when it ran out of line. They really do not know how deep it is.

Coming Next: Mesa Verde National Park

GRATITUDE MOMENT: Today I am grateful that we are flexible in our plans.  When a fire burning north of Durango, caused massive evacuations and road closures, we simply changed course. Sadly, more than a week later the fire, is still ravaging the area and remains largely uncontained.

    Are you still in the area? We’re in Farmington, NM and I think you would enjoy Chaco Canyon. Let me know if we can be of assistance,
