Kirkham Hot Springs, Middle Fork of the Payette River

Every time I see a hot springs, I compare it to Kirkham. This trip didn't prove to be the greatest weather condition as the air was cold and so were the pools due to the very high Payette River. It was great for photographs but not so much for soaking or swimming.

The view from Highway 21.

The bend in the Payette shortly after Kirby Whiterock's car sailed off the highway into the water. The first (and most memorable experience) I had with death as a ten year old.

The new warm pool next to the campground/parking lot.

No separation between the hot pools and the river due to snow melt.

Hello sulfur - another Idaho olfactory experience.

Once again, thanks Mom for all your help!
