In "CP of the USA and Canada" by Don Schnell it looks like the only CPs
growing in Southern Idaho would be D. anglica and a few Utrics (I'm
nearby in Salt Lake City so I've been curious as to what could be found
locally, too, but I've never been able to find them). If I remember
correctly, the Utrics that can be found in Utah (should also be found in
Southern Idaho) are U. intermedia, U. minor, and U. macrorhiza. Next
time you get a chance to look around I'd recommend trying the more flat
and marshy areas instead of canyons and caves; places you'd likely go
duck hunting instead of hiking or exploring. Also, try going when
Utrics might be in flower; I think all three are yellow-flowered. I
imagine D. anglica would be found in similar areas.

Good luck on your two-year "vacation" (yeah, right!). Going anywhere
you might see other CPs?
