I have been to my fair share of hot springs, however, and some of my favorites got cut from the piece for space. So here’s some extra-credit pots you won’t find in the magazine: Cougar Hot Springs, OR; Sweet 16, ID; Sykes, CA; If you are looking for a hot spring in the Northern Rockies, check out the web page for the Idaho Hot Springs Guy—an amazing resource and incredible dedication to the art of soaking.
