Touring Hot Springs - Montana and Wyoming  by Jeff Birkby
Featuring everything from developed hot springs resorts to isolated mountain pools, this guide covers the publicly accessible hot springs in Montana and Wyoming. Clear directions are given to each hot spring along with historical notes, nearby attractions, accommodations, and soaking regulations in Yellowstone National Park. Jeff Birkby’s passion for hot springs began in the early 1980s when he was hired as a geothermal energy specialist for state of Montana. Jeff currently consults on geothermal energy projects and more than a dozen soakable hot springs are within a two-hour drive of Jeff’s home in Missoula, Montana.
