Jul 2, 2016 - Manila, Utah to Lava Hot Springs, Idaho

Manila, Utah to Lava Hot Springs, Idaho Day 44: Friday July 1, 2016 We faced a longer trip than usual, 215 miles, so we were on the road at 8:40 am. Our route was Utah 44 to Ft Bridger, Wyoming where we entered I-80 west (we stopped for fuel at a TA Truck Stop just out of Ft Bridger) and went about 12 miles to the US 191 exit. We went north on US 191 to US 30 at Kemmerer, Wyoming and stayed on US 30 to Lava Hot Springs. We stopped to shop for groceries in Mountain View, Wyoming before we reached Ft Bridger. The terrain was mostly high...

Jun 19, 2015 - Lava HOT Springs, ID.

We are camped next to a very nice family from Las Vegas. They were telling us about Lava Hot Springs and how much they enjoyed it. This peaked the interest of the kids and they wanted to see a Hot Spring. It's plenty hot outside...so let's take a ride and go over to the Hot Springs. It is definitely a tourist town. Made up of shops, restaurants, tube rentals, RV parks and many hotels. It was something new for the kids. The springs range from 102 degrees to 112. We made the mistake of starting out at the hottest. The kids were ready to...

Apr 3, 2014 - Rock Springs, Wy to Lava Hot Springs, ID

4-3-14 Rock Springs, WY to Lava Hot Springs, ID Was a cold night, the temperatures were well below freezing. This morning I had to wrestle with a partially frozen sewer pipe. Nothing gets me going and reminds me of home like a frozen sewer. After dealing with the “water stuff” on the RV, Julie and I decided we should find a place that serves a hot breakfast. She tried putting an address on her wonder phone, but cell coverage in this area is spotty, had to settle for a place we could find and landed at Village Inn. After breakfast, we pulled...

May 6, 2008 - Lava Hot Springs

Lava Hot Springs, Idaho is the location of a very popular public hot springs facility run by the state of Idaho. Originally used by the native people for medicinal/cleansing purposes, it has been state run for many years. We've been here before and enjoyed it enough to stop thru this area to do some hot springs soaking and enjoy the mountainous area of SE Idaho. A few days of soaking and sightseeing seemed to be in order.

Spring '08

Jul 8, 2007 - River tubing and high platform jumping

I was right, the next day was filled with water activities. We ate breakfast early and headed for the Hot Pools. We discovered the price was cheap for a full day of water either at the pool or the hot tubs for one price, so we took the bracelet and began our day. The hot pools ranged in temperature from 112 degrees to 104 degrees. We spent most of our time in the 106 degree pool because it was the largest and it was easy to get into. The pools were so clean and the bottom was gravel so it kind of hurt your feet at first. There was a metal...

Savana's Summer 2007

Jun 4, 2007 - "Vacationed" before retired

Everything we wanted to give away was given away, everything we wanted to keep and store was stored at the kids in Helena, our last Sunday (June 3rd) was over; and we began our final 4 weeks of vacation before 'official' early retirement on July 1. The pictures with this page tell the story...our first night was at Loma, Montana (only $10 a night) and we woke up to snow. We decided to stay another night or two (until the storm passed and the roads dried). We enjoyed our new home and got to frequent a nice little restaurant that did a fine...

Aug 24, 2003 - Idaho Falls, ID

Today we got up at 7 am local time. Had breakfast at the hotel and then took off to hike up to see Delicate Arch at Arches National Park. We didn't make it too far because we forgot to check out of the hotel. We finally took care of that headed to the park for the hike. Fortunately there was no rain at the park for us today. The hike up to Delicate Arch was somewhat strenuous, but we made it with no problems. The hike is about 1.5 miles, but the heat and the hills make it seem somewhat longer. We spent 15 - 20 minutes at the arch...
