I have a friend visiting and one of the things I wanted to do was take him to one of our amazing area hot springs!

Now normally I am not one to go to too many commercial hot springs, unless I am just in need of a good soak. I like to find the hot pools that only fit a few people and are not normally overpopulated like some commercial area hot springs are.

We are so lucky to have so many hot springs in the state of Idaho, it is one of our tourists attractions for sure. So I took my friends Allie and Jeff ( who is visiting from Montana) to a hot spring about an hour and 20 minutes away near Banks. This one can be really tough to get to and so they weren't as prepared as I was.

Especially in the winter hot springs are so peaceful and nice to soak in. Getting out is always an issue because you are so cozy.
