This weekend we went to Carey, Idaho to watch my oldest son Brent III play basketball in a summer tournament. Carey Idaho is near....uh....let's see...NOTHING!!
I shouldn't be so harsh. Carey is 24 miles from "Craters of the Moon" national park and 50 miles from a our country's first Nuclear Plant. Cool!!
The best thing about Carey can be found if you travel just a mere 9.2 miles east of town on Route 20. Very hidden with no signs, is a gem of a hot springs, it's only landmark is a worn turnout aside the main road. This picture (bad quality I know) was taken with Ruth's camera phone looking toward the highway (that's our old suburban parked just off the road). This hot pool is inside lava rock with a gravel bottom. Not too hot, not too cold...just right. Jake, Sarah and Penny can be seen (if you squint) playing in the pool.
Just another cool thing about Idaho!
