Healing Waters of California

Back in the late 1800's the railroad came to life. Track was laid from one end of the country to the other, creating a method of transportation that the average citizen could use to get to the west coast. At one time it is said that the railroad companies wanted to promote business for their new railroad and were offering a ticket from the east to the west coast for just $1.00.

And as a way to promote the railroad they began advertising the natural healing waters that could be found in numerous hot springs in California. A multitude of health resorts began to be established at the sites of many of these warm and hot springs.

Since California has it's own distinctly beautiful landscape that may not be found in other parts of the country, along with lots of sunshine, the easterners eagerly boarded the trains to the west in search of the warm California climate and the hope of partaking in the healing waters.

Many of these old hot springs resorts can still be found in the mountains and on old back roads. Some are still in operation, others are not. The ones that are open often operate out of some of the original old buildings.

These resorts often added new structures as needed over time. Since they were usually located in remote areas, many of these structures have been lost through fires, but were usually rebuilt, bigger and better each time.

When we think about going to a resort spa for a week-end of pampering and rejuvenation, we might think that this is a trendy and modern activity, but throughout time people have sought the health benefits and relaxation of soaking in hot water.

These hot springs were originally used for thousands of years by the native people of California before the white settlers ever arrived. These sites were indeed considered sacred by the native Californians.

These old resorts often have a very spiritual feeling to them. It's as if you can sense the healing spirits and the nature spirits that inhabit the place watching you while you soak.

One thing about soaking in the waters there, once you've tried it you will never be the same. There really is something to the legends of the healing properties of these hot mineral waters. Not only by soaking in them can you find relief, but also by breathing in the fumes that they let off, although some smell better than others. Many people drink water from certain springs as well for relief of certain ailments. And you can usually enjoy a wonderful mud bath there too.

Soaking in the water, breathing the fresh air, enjoying the beautiful views of the hills and mountains lined with oak trees, watching the birds in the sky, and then lying in the sun. That's what I call paradise. Now, if only I could buy that train ticket for a dollar.
