We loved this little find. Not sure many know about it. Scalding water flowing down and meeting up with ice cold water. We all loved it!

Get out of the car and touch nature. If you know that it’s there, it’s not that hard to find. It is near the sign indicating the border of Montana and Wyoming state lines. It’s a short walk down a trail to the water. I...More
