I’m sure you are familiar (maybe not seen, but familiar with) Leonardo DiCaprio’s movie “The Revenant.” If anything, you know that he is attacked by a bear like 4 times. Anyway, we stumbled upon the waterfall that is in that movie, Kootenai Falls. The waterfall itself is pretty cool, wide, lots of water, very blue. What was really cool was that even for such a large powerful waterfall, there were swimming pools right in the middle. We unfortunately did not know this before we engaged in this little hike, so we didn’t swim, but we would still recommend it to others (there were people swimming while we were there…we were jealous).
Another awesome thing about this stop is that on the same hike (a slight detour but same hike) is a swinging bridge. It swung so much that it was actually pretty eerie, and awesome!
We also went to the Ross Creek Cedars which were nearby. If we were just visiting these, they would have been pretty cool, but we are on our way to the coast where we will see much greener, much bigger, just generally more massive and similar trees, so this was a little disappointing.
