Soaking in a Giant Cauldron: Idaho’s Salmon River Hot Springs

Idaho’s Sawtooth Range and Salmon River Valley is a literal hot pot of geothermal activity. The Salmon River winding through volcanic rock and sagebrush grasslands, is one of the wildest rivers left in America. Endless thermal springs feed into the Salmon River creating a hot springs lover’s paradise. The hot springs are remnants of the volcanic activity that created this unique topography. Hot Springs and Hot Pools of the Northwest is an excellent guide to the hot springs of the Salmon River.
