To be honest, I didn't really want to go to a hot springs. In the UNITED STATES??? We just finished summer! But, I'm unfortunately afflicted by that bug of can't not doing something at least once so I can determine whether it's worth doing again. So Francois was able to get a Friday free and we decided to head on to McCall and stop by Gold Forks Hot Springs on the way.
So we lazily and slowly made our way to McCall on one epic Friday. State Highway 55 is gorgeous, by the way, but I'm onto the secret of Idaho-ans (how do you say people from Idaho exactly? Someone tell me). Idaho is gorgeous and beautiful and super underrated. I can't begin to explain what it feels like driving on a (great and super smooth!!) road through any of the mountains in Idaho. Especially as the sun sets and the light plays over the mountains, lighting some areas golden and shading some places dark green. Now that it's autumn, it has gotten even more beautiful, with trees alternating between beautiful green and bright yellow.
