Most People Don’t Realize An Underground River Flows Right Through Idaho

Of all the magnificent wonders that can be seen in Idaho, our wild and rugged rivers are a particularly treasured. Water forms the heart and soul of Idaho, after all! But did you know that Idaho is also home to a series of lost rivers that – quite literally – disappear? The product of Idaho’s tumultuous and volcanic geology, these these underground rivers actually make quite the journey… and it’s fascinating!

Who knew? Even hundreds of feet underground, Idaho is still spectacular!

If you’ve ever been to Thousand Springs or played around in the Lost River Valley, share your photos with us! What other hidden gems are nearby?
