Lower Mesa Falls on Henry’s Fork of the Snake River, Idaho
Karen Kloke took this photo of Idaho’s Lower Mesa Falls in August 2011 while touring the Yellowstone area during a weeklong trip.
Kloke and her friends decided to take a day trip to Craters of the Moon National Park in Idaho. On the way back to west Yellowstone, the group took the Mesa Falls Scenic Byway through the Caribou-Targhee National Forest in Idaho.
“We really didn’t know what to expect but the falls were phenomenal,” Kloke, who lives in Rochester, Minn., told TODAY.com.
Kloke and her friends spent much of the day hiking around the lower and upper falls and didn’t encounter other visitors. “When spending time in the Yellowstone area,” she said, “I highly recommend taking this side trip.”
Kloke doesn’t consider herself a professional photographer; rather, she just enjoys taking photos.
“Nature has provided us with spectacular views and vistas,” she said, “and I’m fortunate enough to capture some of that in pictures.”
