New Mexico's rich history and diverse geography provide the perfect backdrop for an unforgettable geothermal experience-from the low desert in the south to the pine-clad Rocky Mountains in the north. This second edition of Touring New Mexico Hot Springs guides you to thirty-five of the state's best hot springs, whether you're seeking a mineral soak or looking for a sightseeing adventure.
Historian and veteran outdoors author Matt Bischoff reveals his favorite "hot spots," from primitive pools in the backcountry to whirlpool mineral baths near civilization. You can soak in history surrounded by adobe ruins at the Montezuma Hot Springs, take a challenging hike to the remote Turkey Creek Hot Springs, or indulge in a Japanese-style spa treatment at lavish Ten Thousand Waves, or explore the geologic wonders of Soda Dam.
