Driving from Durango to Silverton, we blew right by this very unique piece of nature. On the way back, the question of what is that giant bee hive was posed and we immediately stopped to investigate. This is worth the pull over and quick picture. It might even cure what ails you!

A very strange fountain in the shape of stacked donuts sits on the side of the road to Durango Mountain Resort. The water is nice and warm to the touch. I couldn't see a place to bath in the waters. I suppose it is an interesting way to divert the hot water from the springs.

We came across this interesting attraction by accident. We saw other cars stopped in the small parking lot along the road. This is a natural hot spring that pours from a man made fountain/rock formation. The minerals in the water make for interesting colors. Worth a ten minute stop!

Just a short, fun and surprising stop on the way into or out of Durango...a little springs, which is not really very hot, which springs right up out of the side of the road...The rock formation must be hand constructed since it doesn't look natural

A neat road side attraction that is worth the stop to take photos and admire the beauty behind it. My girls enjoyed it!

This hot spring started out on the other side of the highway. It used to come out of the hillside and flow down the drainage ditch. In winter you could see the steam rising, in summer it just looked like a rusty orange stream. When people stopped to examine it they created a traffic hazard because there was nowhere to... More

As I was driving southbound on US 550 from Silverton to Durango, my family and I saw this 10 feet tall pile of rock off to the side of the road. Nothing I had read had described such a thing near Durango. Since there was no northbound traffic, we did a quick deceleration and U-turn and parked in the convenient... More
