Lava Hot Springs

Several summers ago Edward introduced me to soaking in Hot Springs. It was on our summer-long motorcycle adventure and boy, was I relieved to get the grime off as we’d been traveling on the small bikes and camping the entire summer.  We’re not those crazy-nudist-pot-smoking-hotpot-soakers (and we’ve met some)–we’re just “normal” folks that like par boiling ourselves in mineral water.

One of our favorite places to soak is Lava Hot Springs.

It’s about 90 miles south of  Idaho Falls, and it is pure heaven. It’s clean, the facility is well kept, and they offer a variety of pools with a variety of temperatures.  We went there yesterday and I have to tell you, this morning and a city-water shower later, I am still feeling the soothing effects of the mineral water on my skin and on my psyche.

Anyone got a favorite soaking place they want to share?
