Hot Springs State Park, Thermopolis, Wyoming. The park was built around the world’s largest single mineral hot spring. Big Spring pours forth millions of gallons of mineral water every day at a constant temperature of 135 degrees Fahrenheit. The perpetual fountain forms a seething caldron from which some of the water is channeled into pools to be cooled and then piped into bathhouses for public use.
Wind River Canyon is Wyoming’s newest Scenic Byway, and offers tourists 34 miles of unspoiled scenic views, geologic field exploration opportunities, abundant wild life, float trips, canyon fishing, boat launching facilities and state park public camping. For hundreds of years, Native Americans, explorers, and pioneers used this scenic canyon as a corridor to travel between central and northwest Wyoming.
