Re: McCall, ID

Thanks everyone, for the great ideas! We're actually making the road trip from western Colorado to McCall, ID via Moab, UT. I haven't seen Arches Natl. Park since I was a kid! After McCall, I think we'll take the Steens Mountain suggestion on the way back to Gold Country. Thanks for all the input. I never would have found that area on my own.

If you are going through the GJ/Fruita Colorado way on I 70, make sure you take the drive through the Colorado National Monument. Then on your way to Moab take Hwy 128. Much more scenic route to Moab.

Re: McCall, ID

We just got home, what a great trip! Thanks for all the travel tips and out of the way places. We posted a few pictures of random hot springs that we found along the way. Only in a SMB can you have a powder day and a hot spring night........ Thanks again.

Re: McCall, ID

Great photos and sounds like a super trip. You going to keep the locations of the hot springs secret??

Re: McCall, ID

I'm out of town right now, but I can get you the gps numbers for the high desert hot springs in a few days. It's in the Jordan Valley off I95 in southern Oregon. I think around mile 178? We could only see three small lights on the horizon, other than that it was all ours. The spring with the granite was Crystal Hot springs just south of McCall Id., both worth stopping at. We made it to two other springs, but they were more commercial and not as photo worthy. Happy soaking!

Re: McCall, ID

Thanks for the info, I'll be heading up that way later this year and will have to make a stop!

Nothing like a desert soak, my sweetie, and a cool libation....

Re: McCall, ID

Are you talking about EASTERDAY (MC DERMITT) HOT SPRING in south east Oregon? My Hot Springs book has it south of milemarker 117 off US 95, etc. ...etc.. I have not been to that area yet. Or, is it one that is not in the book? I love those.
