Natural Springs - Mouthful of Minerals

Carbonated gas makes the water spout. The minerals create the tufa surrounding it. There is a half mile trail that takes you to a few springs that have their own unique properties and flavor.

Natural Springs - Mouthful of Minerals

Driving through New York we found Saratoga Springs, where there are huge bath houses and pools with natural mineral springs. It is a state park where you can fish and spend the day. Throughout the one section of the park are natural springs, but don't even think about tasting the water. We made the mistake of doing that and let's just say the taste isn't too pleasant because all of the minerals.

There is also a really good bar-b-que drive-in restaurant right down the road called Saratoga Style Bar-B-Que.
