cotton castle

Our little road trip into Turkey took us to one of the most interesting natural wonders I have ever seen.  Pamukkale is the site of a hot spring that has been used as a spa since the Greco-Roman times.  The whole hillside is a type of tavertine, with mineral deposits turning everything white as snow.  Pools of water form like terraces down the side of the structure and little streams flow at your feet.
