La Paloma Too - Hot Springs in the U.S.

Finding a hot spring straight out of the ground is not so easy.

Normally, only a tub can be made right above the source of the spring.

However, at Truth or Consequences, one of the most famous spa towns in the southwest of the U.S., there are many hot pools fed by geothermal water straight out of the ground.
