Last Sunday we visited this resort and took our annual bath. This is one of the most popular pleasure resorts in the state, and could, with a small amount of capitol expended, be made to surpass the famous hot springs of Arkansas. There is no lack of hot mineral water, enough being allowed to run into the creek without being used to run a large water wheel. The springs although being situated at a high altitude are almost entirely free from snow the year round. Vegetables which have grown in the open air unprotected are now large enough for table use. The hotel accommodations are unexcelled. Mr. Elliott, the proprietor doing all in his power to make guests comfortable.
When you visit, the springs don’t miss taking in the Sam Wards fish pool: The fare on the South Park to the Spring is $1.45.
