Lava Hot Springs, Idaho

Went to Lava Hot Springs Pools for the weekend after John finished his job in Soda Springs. We were wondering why there were so many people in town...but then realized it was Columbus Day weekend...So we chose to go to the pools in the evening both Friday and Saturday nights. Friday it was was fun to sit in the hot pools and have the cool rain. Saturday was just cool and the hot springs refreshing.

We did a short hike up the hill behind the town...we had intended to do the hill on the opposite side of town but couldn't find an access....seemed like it was all private land.

This is a very small town and it looks like the hot springs is what makes it survive...
The pools are great...four of them, that vary in temperature...the hottest being around 110...ouch...

Here's a little history on the Pools.


  1. Well that was lovely. I think it would be a great place to live. The sound of the trains and the hot springs alone are very enticing. Thank you for sharing. Oh, that cake was something else!

  2. The annie lennox song was lovely. She has such a distinct voice. Good song for travelers and wanderers. That cake looked as sick as the pastry I had from fresh markets...maybe sicker.


ok what do you really think?????
