The problem is that sometimes the falls aren’t roaring and are pretty disappointing. During those times of waterfall sadness, you may have to travel to fulfill your need for waterfalls. When that happens, don’t miss this other, always amazing, waterfall in Southern Idaho near Yellowstone National Park.

This Must-Visit Waterfall in Southern Idaho is Not The Shoshone Falls

I’ve argued that the waterfall in Box Canyon is better than the Shoshone Falls, but my wife calls that trip the death hike and won’t go with me anymore. Maybe after she sees this video of Mesa Falls she’ll agree to a compromise and do the hike with me. Mesa Falls is gorgeous and the hike to get there is also amazing.
