We visited Lower and Upper Mesa Falls this morning:

Upper Mesa Falls

Lower Mesa Falls was pretty spectacular, but Upper Mesa Falls was even more so!

Then we went to see Big Springs and John Sack's cabin:




Considered part of the headwaters of the Henrys Fork, Big Springs emerges from the Yellowstone aquifer. Each day, 420 million gallons of water flow from the aquifer at a constant 52 degrees. John Sack was a local character who built the house across the pond...it is now on the National Register of Historic Places.

We then drove parts of the Fort Henry Historic Byway and the Lost Gold Trails Loop, stopping to read about the 1877 Nez Perce battle at Camas Meadows:
