Big Springs -- Origin of Mesa Falls, Idaho

This part of the U.S. is so beautiful it's almost more than one can stand! But it's an American tradition to embrace extremes...so allow me to encourage you to go from the drama of Mesa Falls to the serenity of their origin, Big Springs, Idaho.

The Springs apparently reminds everyone of what we once had. Everywhere I looked I saw graffitied "Remember The Cuyahoga." In spite of that, I took some pictures.

Huge trout live in these waters. There are signs that say no wading, but small children are regularly dragged from the shallows into the four-foot depths never to be seen again. It's a wonderful place.
