Box Canyon Springs is one of too many hidden gems in Idaho.

When a thing seems oh so dry and pale and drear,
you'd least expect that within lay a thing that you'd hold dear.
If you explore and see what's inside that draws another near,
you just may find it's full of life and water crystal clear.

The McNeese crew joined us for an impromptu adventure on Sunday and we headed South to Hagerman and to Box Canyon Springs trail. The trail can be a loop, but is only about 1 1/2 miles in to where folks stop to swim in the gorgeous clear spring water.

It's just amazing how you can drive up to something like this, look right over the top and never realize what beauty lie below.

I'll never tire of exploring this wonderful creation... especially with good company.
