Hot Springs

We drove into Hot Springs for the day. It had a lot more traffic than we'd seen the whole week. We made appointments at Quapaw Baths, then went to the park visitor center and to the top of the mountain tower. Our camera battery died before we could take any pictures from the tower. Hot Springs was the strangest National Park we've ever visited; the main thing to see is historic buildings and the actual hot springs are only visible in fountains.

we took turns taking mineral baths at Quapaw Baths, in one of the historic 1920s buildings (modernized inside)
the water in this fountain is hot!
cooling room in the historic Fordyce Baths (now the park headquarters)
we thought this shower was a little scary
private bath cabinets
stained glass ceiling in the men's area (much nicer than the women's area)
