Add Idaho's Kirkham Hot Springs to Your Winter Bucket List

If these photos don't convince you, we don't know what will.

Idaho is the ultimate winter wonderland. Skiing, sledding, snowshoeing, sleigh rides...you name it, Idaho's got it. But if you ask us, our very favorite activity during the snowy months is to suit up and soak in one of Idaho's relaxing hot springs.

Nestled right up on the South Fork of the Payette River, the only thing more soothing than the warm water is the view you take in as you soak. The rushing river and mountains covered in snow make for an idyllic backdrop.
