Daydream: Pamukkale { Turkey }

Turkey1

Hello friends!  Today I’m { daydreaming } about this amazing World Heritage Site in Turkey.  Pamukkale, meaning “cotton castle” in Turkish, is a natural site in Denizli Province in southwestern Turkey.  The city contains hot springs and travertines, terraces of carbonate minerals left by the flowing water.  It is Turkey’s foremost mineral-bath spa because of its natural beauty: hot calcium-laden waters spring from the earth and cascade over a cliff.  As they cool, they form dramatic travertines of hard, brilliantly white calcium that form pools.  (Image credits 1, 2, 3, 4 / Info found HERE).  Enjoy!
