Jerry Johnson Hot Springs

On our way up Lolo Pass, we stopped off at Jerry Johnson Hot Springs. When I lived here 22 years ago (when Kait was in utero), I visited the hot springs with my friend Dave Stedman. It was winter, so we had to ski in to sit in the hot Idaho sulfur water. I would have enjoyed knowing, 22 years ago, that my soon-to-be born baby girl would some day do a bike tour with me so we could visit this place and soak in the spring.

The best spring is at the end, very end, of the trail.
Where the hot spring enters the crick–half hot, half chillingly cold.

We took the hiker’s route.
