An early morning, fall visit to natural
hot springs located in the Boise National Forest. This was an
important trip for me; it was my first hot springs after being down
and out with some not fun cancer stuff for most of the summer
season. It was great to be back!
No Soap, Shampoo or BIO-Soap/Shampoo
Allowed in Hot Springs! Avoid Being Fined!
Public hot springs are not bathing facilities
and do not have 'plumbing' like that of commercial, improved hot springs. Soap and shampoo (including biodegradable soap and shampoo) do not completely breakdown
naturally. This pollutes our water systems (ingested by fish, animals, humans)
at or near the source. This is also illegal in most wilderness and public lands areas.
