Big Springs

At home, our subdivision is called Island Park. The street we live on is Big Springs. So, naturally, when we got up here, we wanted to check out Big Springs. It produces 120 million gallons of water a day as it forms the headwaters of the Henry's Fork of the Snake River. The water comes from a glacial flow from water that percolated through the caldera/lava floor. It is pristine and absolutely gorgeous. Pictures don't do it justice. Maren and Mira overlook the crystal-clear water.


There were some very large trout swimming in place to eat whatever food is tossed to them. From us, they got crackers. So did the seagulls.

Wake up, Micah!





Quite a nice picture of Alan and Janna


And this series of pictures of Mira comes via her request. She wanted me to take lots and lots of her. And how can I choose which to post?














Ah, sweetness. If only she was so adorable at bedtime...


Mira and an uncooperative Braden





I'm telling you, this water looked good enough to drink any day straight from the source.




Don't know if you can see this, but the trout are right in the water. They were some fat daddies.
