Not Icelandic hot springs...

We headed down south on I-25 today... we stopped and had a great lunch at this little restaurant.  We checked out the hot springs at Truth or Circumstances (It's really Consequences).  Turns out they weren't the Icelandic hot springs that we were imagining...


Instead, they were tubs of hot water and not just a hole in the ground that had hot water in it... we felt that it was a bit deceiving the way that they market it towards tourists...


Uncle Mike found the suspicious piping next to the teepee in the front yard of the hot springs 'resort'... he used some technical science talk that basically meant that they were pumping up hot water from a hot spring that was underground...


If you really wanted to, you could rent one third of a trailer and get a discount on bathing in the hot springs tubs... apparently, people think this is a good idea because it was hard to find a parking spot... we resisted the temtpation...
