How have I lived in this state for so long and never seen this river? Kootenai Falls looks absolutely STUNNING. Am I the only person who didn't know about this???

Along with a few other locations in Montana that I've somehow neglected to see yet, this is definitely going on the Summer 2016 road trip list.

How to get there: Kootenai Falls is located Lincoln County in northwestern Montana, 7 miles northwest of Libby. Take Montana Highway 37 north from Libby to Kootenai River Road (county road).

According to VisitMontana.com:

Kootenai Falls is the largest undammed falls in the state and a major attraction to those traveling through the area.

It offers an unforgettable and breathtaking view as the Kootenai River loses 300 feet in elevation traveling a few hundred yards down river. A pleasant surprise to any photographer or nature lover.

An attraction at the falls is a swinging bridge that provides access to the opposite side of the Kootenai River, a prime Montana fishery.
