Cold spring Creek - there you go. It can be a tough get at higher flows as there is just a bit of class II above it - if you aren't paying attention that is.
Your September is looking better. We just got a foot to foot and a half in the last two days - above 7,000 feet in the mtns in central Idaho. Rain below but that high elevation snow is what feeds September flows.
do you mean the hot spring there paddle Iraq? I had an enjoyable soak, due to the nature of my hot tub companions, but I didn't believe in hot springs mites before that soak. Holy smokes. Welts and rashes everywhere.
I have never stayed enough to find a cold spring. One of my favorite camps on the river is right around the corner at Rock Island, so if I get close I stay there.
