Visit These Durango, CO, Hot Springs
Pinkerton Hot Springs
We have to admit; the Pinkerton Hot Springs isn’t what most people picture when they think of these natural features. Rather than a series of deep pools, you’ll see a stunning rock formation that has is painted with greens, reds, and yellows. These rocks have been placed there so that the hot springs can discharge safely. You may be surprised to learn that these rocks were not, in fact, handpainted or colored by man. The rock minerals in the water have caused the discoloration, as well as built up on the rocks, creating new patterns. This site was first discovered in the 1800s and was a hotspot (pun intended) for visitors to the area. It’s even rumored that Marilyn Monroe stayed at the resort that once sat atop the springs.
