Thermal features at Hot Springs State Park differ from those found in Yellowstone, which are heated by magma near the earth's surface. The hot spring water found here originates in the Owl Creek Mountains to the south, where surface water seeps down through layers of porous rock. As the water flows deeper into the earth, it is heated due to geothermal gradient - a natural increase in the temperature of the earth as depth increases. When the heated water reaches fractured rocks within the Thermopolis Anticline it is channeled back to the surface.
