The Hot Spring:

Open seasonally, well the pools anyway, smith Cabin emerges out from under the road and spills into the Middle Fork Boise river at around 140 degrees and is chanelled into a pool, although quikly cooled by the river. I think with alittle love there could be some nice pools every year, that sounds good for a little rant about the hot springs.
