the Fountain of Youth is in Wyoming?

... at least the RV park is.
A friend told me a few years ago that she had taken the hot springs trail across the US and finally the time has arrived to embark upon one myself! I've purchased two books, Hot Springs Hot Pools of the Northwest (Aqua Thermal Access) and Touring Washington and Oregon Hot Springs (A Falcon Guide).

I've traveled extensively in many regions of the US but have never set foot in the Pacific Northwest, but this year, I plan to. If Marc doesn't manage to meet me somewhere along the trail, I guess I'll end up in Vegas on my way back.

The Aqua Thermal Access book mentions several springs with Thermopolis, WY as their address. I had included it in my list of 'must explore' locations. It says the well looks like a small volcano with over one million gallons of water being pumped out per day. No chemical treatments to the water is a BIG plus for me! Two hours from Yellowstone.

I'll take some pics when I get there.
