Pinkerton Hot Springs

Between Durango, CO, along Highway 550 and the house we rented north of the town sits an interesting rock.  We drove by it a couple of times before stopping and checking it out.  We found out it was Pinkerton Hot Springs.  The colorful rock pile was generated as a protected area for the hot springs to release water.  The water’s minerals have caused the colorful look for the rocks exterior.  The temperature of the water is a sweltering 95 to 105 degrees.  Be cautious if you decide to touch the water.
