COMPASS GREAT FRONTIER U.S. Lava Hot Springs of the United States Continued from p. 47 Lava Hot Springs, which is steeped in Native American and Oregon Trail- related history, also has an indoor aquatic center, and its outdoor hot soaking pools are open year-round. Another hot spring to see is Burgdorf Hot Springs in McCall, a rustic resort tucked away in the mountains. Shoshone Falls is located on the Snake River and offers the best view- ing in the spring, as runoff from winter snow creates an awe-inspiring experi- ence, Flick says. Groups can kayak, canoe and paddleboard in the Snake River or follow the Thousand Springs Scenic Byway, which offers incredible views of the river and natural springs flowing from cliffs into the river at Thousand Springs State Park.
