  1. Default Road Trip from Sun Valley to Jackson Hole

    My boyfriend and I will be driving from Sun Valley, Idaho to Jackson Hole, Wyoming during the first week of March. We have alloted an entire day for this trip and would love to make a few interesting stops along the way (even if it means driving an indirect route). Specifically, we are interested in snowmobile tours and hot springs (we would prefer natural hot springs over i.e. a pool with a slide). We would consider cross country skiing (have looked into this at craters of the moon) but will be skiing in both SV and JH and are looking forward to having a day off! I couldn't find much info on hot springs (that aren't man-made pools) or snowmobiling tours in this part of Idaho. Any ideas would be much appreciated! If we are unable to do either of those activities, is there anything else worth seeing? We live in Manhattan and are really looking forward to being surrounded by natural beauty. Mesa Falls looks particularly pretty and not too out of the way. Is Idaho Falls worth the stop? Any other smaller interesting towns? Suggestions on where to stop for food? Very much appreicate any advice!

    My dad loved natural hot springs, and had a directory of them at one time. Alas, he has given the book to a thrift store because he and my mom can't travel any more. But one of the things I recall him saying was that so many of the hot springs have been commercialized! He would just find one that he liked, and then the next time they would travel through, he'd find that it had been made into a commercial pool. So frustrating!

    Did you try Visit Idaho's Hot Springs site? Maybe it will glean something for you?

    Donna - thanks so much for your info...if only I could track down your dad's book! I did see this website, and looked into a few of them but they all seemed quite commercialized! Such a shame.

    Guidebook

    This is the book that my dad had, I think. Of course the date on it might make it a bit "out of date". Doing a quick search under "hot springs" in Amazon, I came up with a number of different guidebooks for hot springs, some a lot more up-to-date than Dad's 1994 book.
