Pinkerton Hot Springs in Colorado

The colorful and convenient Pinkerton Hot Springs north of Durango, Colorado

On a recent multi-day rural land real estate photo shoot in Navajo Dam, New Mexico, there was free time one day for an afternoon trip up to nearby Durango, Colorado where Jessica and I pretty much stumbled upon Pinkerton Hot Springs.  Right on the side of the highway sits this natural hot spring that you can take your shoes off and dip your toes in the warm water burbling up from somewhere way down below.  Usually these natural hot springs require a hike or at least a small trek to reach.  This one though, you can drive right up to!  It's a small hidden gem worth stopping for if you are ever near or in Durango, Colorado!
