Upper Mesa Falls, aka Big Falls, is an absolutely awesome waterfall dropping about 114 ft. on the Henrys Fork of the Snake River. The power of the water falling here is great, and the width of the waterfall is 300 ft. wide; it reminds us of a small Niagara Falls.
In the past this site belonged to a power company, but it was purchased recently by Targhee National Forest and developed into a scenic attraction with a walking path leading to several viewpoints. Excellent! In the never-ending fight to save our waterfalls and trails, this is a big win!
