Hot springs-consisting three pools with different temperatures. The top springs consist of a hot water pool -- the temperature of which is unknown to me at this time. It feeds into both the lower and upper pools. The largest pool, the top pool, has vegetation at the lower end. The second pool, which is more warm and has more vegetation, contains Rio Grande Silvery Minnows, an endangered species. The minnows seem to be unaffected by visitors who enjoy the springs. It is important to remember that minnows can be endangered and are protected. The third pool, which is cooler, flows down the mountain into the creek, which eventually feeds into Rio Grande River. ....Sacred site of Native Americans The area is home to a number of petroglyphs!
