2010/097: Manitou Springs

Sampling the mineral springs.

This was the one that smelled so bad, and the only one I didn’t try.

  1. I tried the water in Bath, England, which is supposed to be filled with good stuff for your body. Well, it might be but it was the nastiest water I have ever drank. I’ll pass on these, too.

    How did your daughter like it?

  2. I grew up in Bad Cannstatt, which is a suburb of Stuttgart, Germany, and there was/is a mineral spring, too. You would always see people filling up their bottles, but the water tasted NASTY!
    These actually weren’t too bad at all. There wasn’t a lot of flavor (at least the ones that I tried).
    The kids thought they were OK….. at least not bad enough to make them stop tasting the next ones we found 😉

    what a neat experience! I can’t say I’ve ever had water from a spring.

  4. What a neat place! When spring water is good, it is really, really good and when it is bad, boy-oh-boy, it’s BAD! LOL! We used to visit a natural spring that literally was a little spigot in some concrete right off the highway. You’d never know it was there. We would stop on our way to the lake and fill up all our water bottles. Was the BEST water I’ve ever had!

    • There must have been a few like that in Manitou Springs, because we didn’t find them all.

    • We tasted 5 or 6… can’t remember if I got pictures of all of them or if I missed one. You could tell that it wasn’t regular water, and I would have preferred it to be a little colder than it was.

  6. Talking about mineral water…
    Once upon a time, I visited Sct. Cesare Terme in Italy. Of course I had a swim in their mineral water. My skin smelled of phosphor and sulfur for days – inspite of frequent showers!
    My advice: Don’t drink it if you ever go there!

    • LOL thanks for the advice…. I won’t be swimming in it either.
      The last spring pictured (Navajo Geyser) smelled like sulphur. Yuck!
