This Rock Formation Is One Of Idaho’s Most Photographed Spots

In Idaho it seems that wherever you look there is another weird or unique wonder to be explored. This rock formation located in Southern Idaho has become a sort of state icon because of just how….odd it is. Thousands and thousands of people travel to this geologic formation for the picture perfect photo opportunity. Balanced Rock stands at 48 feet tall and 40 feet wide, with only a 3 foot wide stem supporting it. But pictures just don’t do it justice. You have to see it in person.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
