The World’s Largest Mineral Hot Springs

Part of the World’s Largest Mineral Hot Springs. (Wikipedia/Iidar Sagdejev)

This natural Wonder lies within Hot Springs State Park in Thermopolis, Wyoming. The liquid that forms the World’s Largest Mineral Hot Springs begins its journey in the Owl Creek Mountains, eventually making its way underground. It’s there where the heating element does its work, a volcanic action that brings the average temperature of the Springs to 135 degrees Fahrenheit. The mineral component of the Springs comes with the absorption of chemicals from rocks, and gasses associated with the volatile interior of the earth.

And when it all gathers, when it pools at the World’s Largest Mineral Hot Springs, it becomes the World’s Largest, with an infusion of an amazing 18 million, 600 thousand gallons a day.

These magnificent springs have proven enjoyable, and even medicinal, for centuries. Native American people in Central Wyoming, of course most-recently the Shoshone and Arapaho Nations, used the Springs for medicinal and spiritual purposes for hundreds of years. The U.S. government re-acquired the land, a 10-square mile parcel, for 60,000-dollars, in 1896. Shoshone Chief Washakie and Arapaho Chief Sharp Nose were signatories to the sale.

The World’s Largest Mineral Hot Springs lie in the middle of Wyoming, and provide a wonderful experience in the sheer power and mystique of the earth below. It’s a soothing dip into the natural waters at The World’s Largest Mineral Hot Springs.
