Consider for a moment the amazing abilities of water. Watch it rush, tumble and fall. Bubbling and hot, it absorbs the very land itself, dissolving the minerals of the earth and assuming powers to restore health. Flowing fast and cold, water can cut through solid stone and wash it away. It has even helped trap ancient creatures and transform them into fossils. In the center of Wyoming, you'll find a town dedicated to the powers of water -- the very hot waters from which it takes its name. Spend a weekend around Thermopolis to witness what water can do.
