Pagosa Springs Geothermal Hotsprings

Did you know that Southwest Colorado, Pagosa Springs to be precise, is home to the world’s deepest geothermal hot springs and is now listed as such in the Guinness Book of World Records? What makes this record interesting is that no one really knows just how deep the hot springs are. Verified by Guinness in 2011, the plumb line measuring the depth ran out at 1,002 feet without ever reaching bottom. The 'mother spring' is a gorgeous turquoise pool approximately 35 feet across with an average depth of 20-30 feet. About 15 feet from one edge, there is a hole in the bottom two feet in diameter. This is the main spring that reaches an unknown depth. Discovered hundreds of years ago by the Southern Ute Indian Tribe, the hot springs were and still are revered for their rejuvenating and healing qualities. Today, the world's deepest measured hot spring is a fitting title for what can arguably be called the world's most beautiful hot springs resort.
