Fordyce Bathhouse

On the day after Christmas, Tim, Angela, Joshua, Sarah and I headed south to Hot Springs for a day of adventure. Our first stop was the Fordyce Bathhouse, visitor center for Hot Springs National Park. We wandered about looking, and laughing, at the facilities and equipment used in the early 20th Century by people looking for cures for all sorts of ailments.

It’s tough to tell because of all the minerals caked on the statue, but that’s an Indian maiden offering water to a guy in Spanish armor.

The chair takes a bath in the hydrotherapy room while Tim and Sarah try to figure out the hoses pointed at the shower. Apparently, 18 shower heads didn’t provide enough water.
