Thousand Springs State Park, Idaho
Groundwater surfaces in spectacular style here at Thousand Springs State Park in southern Idaho, United States. The park is a public recreation and nature preservation area, and it is filled with water features, including spring-fed waterfalls flowing from the canyon walls that gives this area its name. The springs here are fed by the Eastern Snake Plain Aquifer, a huge reservoir of groundwater beneath the Snake River Plain. The groundwater here travels so slowly, it can take 150 to 250 years to flow from its source into Thousand Springs.
