We have many in the Magic Valley who enjoy flinging their kayaks over waterfalls. But, many in our area are the small and cute kind. Recently, several kayaks decided to tackle the mighty Mesa Falls in eastern Idaho. This is what happened.

If you're not familiar with the upper and lower Mesa Falls, the Forest Service describes the nearly 10-story drop that the water cascades over. The Mesa Falls area is just over a 3 hour drive from Twin.

The skill it takes to manage a kayak going over falls like that is beyond my ability to understand. I would be happy just hiking the Mesa Falls nature trail which is a very sweet day hike.

While you're there, don't forget to check out the Mesa Falls Visitor Center which is open during the summer from 9:30 am to 5:30 pm.
