HISTORY: Near the corner of southwestern New Mexico -- midway between Silver City and Deming -- is Faywood Hot Springs, a natural geothermal high desert oasis. For centuries, this special place has lured many to its seductive, healing waters. Prehistoric peoples, Spanish explorers, weary westward travelers, soldiers, miners, health-seekers, a professional baseball team, and a multitude of everyday visitors from around the globe have found respite at the springs.
The hot water flows from an opening in the top of a distinct mound of material known as tufa. The tufa dome was created over countless centuries from endless gallons of flowing mineral water deposited on the nearly flat desert floor. This unusual geologic phenomenon is a remnant of extremely violent episodes of volcanic activity occurring in this part of the world some 20 to 45 million years ago, in an era when the nearby City of Rocks State Park was formed.
Prehistoric peoples probably revered the hot springs as a sacred healing place. The presence of circular depressions or mortar holes in the tufa dome suggests early use of the springs by these nomadic hunter-gatherers. Pottery and other artifacts found in the vicinity attests that the villagers from the nearby Mimbres pueblos knew of these warm healing waters, as did the later Apaches. It was an ideal place to erase the winter chill before migrating to the mountains for the summer.

TRUTH OR CONSEQUENCES, NM | Relaxing in Hot Springs
We slipped into the hot springs at Riverbend Hot Springs and a feeling of zen slipped over us. The serene music playing, the mountains in the distance, and the feeling of the naturally hot water on a cold winter day combined together for a feeling a pure bliss. Our time in New Mexico was short, but this was one of our favorite stops in the entire trip!
Truth or Consequences is best known for two things. The first is the naturally occurring hot springs, the other is the name. Originally known simply as Hot Springs, the name changed in 1950 to honor the famous NBC radio show of the same name.
There is more to Truth or Consequences than just the hot springs. While small, it's one of New Mexico's most charming towns. The downtown area has restaurants, shops, and a fantastic brewery. Everyone we met and talked to was very friendly and welcoming, which only made our visit even more enjoyable.
Truth or Consequences is the most popular in the colder months, as the demand for hot springs goes down as the weather gets warmer. Located about halfway between Albuquerque, NM and El Paso, TX, it's a popular getaway for those looking to get out of the city and into a more rural part of the state.
