Wyoming’s Naturally Heated Outdoor Pool Is All You Need This Winter
Usually, swimming outdoors is an activity to enjoy during the hot summer season, but in Wyoming, if we restricted ourselves to hitting the pool when there’s no snow on the ground, we’d have a grand total of maybe 30 good swimming days each year – and not all in a row.
Fortunately, Nature cut us a break, providing the Cowboy State with an abundance of geothermal hot springs. There are several naturally heated pools for public use all across Wyoming, but the experience you’ll get at Granite Hot Springs nestled in the spectacular and scenic wilderness of the Bridger-Teton National Forest is one that shouldn’t be missed. When the temperatures drop, and the snow level rises, it’s one outdoor pool you’ll dream of slipping into.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
