For hundreds of years, people have used these Natural Hot Springs for Health Purposes, easing such conditions as Arthritis, Rheumatism, Skin and Stomach Disorders, and a wide variety of Muscle and Joint Ailments. These waters are Wonderfully Relaxing and a Great Aid in Easing Tension and Fatigue. This valley is special place of Peace, Rest and Healing. From Native American times until today, a Legacy of Peace and Healing has been handed down.

3 Pools are proudly Drained and Cleaned Every Single Night,then refilled with the Finest Natural Hot Mineral Water to be found Anywhere in the World. NO chemicals of any kind are added to what is already the Best Water Nature has to offer.

This was a very clean hot springs and said to be the most healing around, thanks to a high concentration of Sulfur along with Magnesium and Lithium. Some even drink the water claiming it has curative properties for stomach ailments. The water is even used in creating a line of locally made soaps. But the water also serves another and more practical need and that is heating the adjoining Motel and Clinic. Pumped up from a 35-foot-deep well, the 130-degree water circulates throughout the hotel complex, losing about 8 to 10 degrees in the process. After its circuitous route through a plumber's nightmare, the water is pumped into the 30-foot by 35-foot outdoor pool and the smaller, hotter indoor pool. The outdoor pool is usually cooled to 98 degrees, while the 10-by-15-foot indoor plunge is kept around 105 degrees. The new outdoor pool is kept around 103 degrees.

Karen Duquette found it to be a great place to relax in the style of an RV Gypsy. Lee Duquette went back to the RV until Karen was ready to leave the hot pools. He does not like hot or cold pools nor hot springs.

The outdoor pool was entirely surrounded by paintings that created an atmosphere of the West. The Murals were painted by well known artist Mike Mahoney.

Karen Duquette tried the other outdoor pool, which was only 98 degrees, but she liked the hotter one better. There were not a lot of people here at this time, and most of them were in the cooler pool.

This was a perfect weather day.

Then it was time for Karen Duquette to try the indoor pool. The indoor pool was 105 degrees, only 2 degrees hotter than Karen's favorite outdoor pool. But because it was indoors, it was like a steam room. Karen's camera fogged up the very second she walked in the door.

Then Karen Duquette opened the door wide to let some cooler air come in and when one other person came into the room, Karen asked him to try and take her photo before the room steamed up again. He took Karen's photo, and he only stayed about one minute. Karen stayed about ten minutes, then returned to the outdoor pool, which felt more natural to her to be outdoors when in a hot spring.
