Utah Crater

 

Explore Homestead Crater in Midway, the hot-spring pools inside a 55-foot-high beehive-shaped limestone dome formed from mineral deposits thousands of years ago. While deep, the crater is relatively small—400 feet in diameter.  Opened to the public in 1996, this geothermal hot spring first became popular in the early 1900s among miners, who used it to ease aches and pains. Today, Park City–area skiers do the same. Maintaining a temperature of 90 degrees, the water is warm, but not hot. Full submersion is not only possible, but recommended, and visitors can scuba dive and snorkel in addition to soaking. An intro to scuba class is a popular way for first-timers to try out the sport and snorkeling equipment is available. Be forewarned: Amenities are few, but the crater’s originality offsets its Spartan environment. Reservations required.
