This winter break went by with great speed. It turns out when you are working and taking an evening class there is not much time to sit back and catch your breath. Fortunately the class I took was great - in fact, it was probably one of my favorite undergraduate classes that I have taken.
All that to say, when the weekends rolled around, the beau and I tried out hardest to have some mini adventures. The final weekend we had before the Spring semester started was a perfect opportunity for venturing out of Boise up into the snow covered mountains after I finished work on Saturday evening. We decided to head up to Idaho city, relax, and find some hot springs. We managed to make last minute reservations at the hot springs retreat called The Springs for the Monday before class. We spent our Sunday walking around Idaho City, taking in some the history, drinking coffee and then making the spectacular drive over to Lowman to visit the Kirkham hot springs and to camp.
We really lucked out and had the Kirkham hot springs all to ourselves! They weren't quite as hot as we would have liked, but peaceful and rejuvenating none the less.
