The powerful waters of Fossil Springs rise from the bottom of a 1600-feet deep canyon in Cococino National Forest, in Arizona. Every minute, 20,000 gallons of calcium-laden water pour out, laying down deposits of travertine limestone and creating fossils that inspire the area’s name. In the center of the pattern, the springs surge to the surface, flowing out to fuel the wild waters of Fossil Creek, one of only two “Wild and Scenic” rivers in Arizona to be protected under the federal Wild and Scenic Rivers Program.
