Ambrose and I went for a drive yesterday. We wanted to find out if our car would take us out past Twin Springs along the Middle Fork of the Boise River at this time of year. If it could, then we could plan for a camping trip over the weekend. If not, then we’d at least have gotten some time out of the apartment that we both sorely needed.

Just getting out of the house was rewarding, but the views made the trip extra special.  
Before we left pavement, we kept the windows down and I got some shots of the river. 

It felt good just getting out; I did wonder what we’d see once we got to the areas people tended to flock to. 

No water coming through the spillway at this time of year. 

I don’t know what a ‘normal’ Tuesday afternoon in April would look like on his beach, but people did look like they were making good faith attempts at social distancing out in the woods. 

More well-spaced beach goers. 

Sheep Creek had a good flow going where it joined the river. 

The pictures don’t really do it justice. 

I’m sure this hot spring has a name, but I don’t know it. 

All I know is that the water is delightfully hot, deep enough to submerse myself and it was absolutely what I needed. 

I don’t like wearing bras, but I was glad I decided to wear this one since the hot spring stop was completely unplanned. 

Ambrose and I watched the river flow by for a while here. 

Partly cloudy, neither too hot, nor too cold. It really was a lovely day, and I could have stayed so much longer than we did.

The store in Twin Springs is closed, but there are clearly some people living there. 

We left around 4 pm and got home a little after 6. Even though it’s supposed to rain on Saturday, I’m very hopeful that we’ll be able to go out, find an isolated spot and spend the night this weekend. I need a night outside.
