Pumpkin Springs

Pumpkin Springs is one of the strangest and most unusual places along the River. It is travertine enclosed spring, which is a form of limestone especially deposited by hot springs. It builds up and forms weird shapes, as you can see here and often has a fibrous appearance as if it is made of vegetable matter. This natural bowl spills bitter water into the river but beware of what has been deposited within. The waters within the spring contain very high levels of arsenic, not to mention concentrations of copper, zinc and lead. Don’t go swimming – but the view is gorgeous.
