I finally stopped at this gem today! Iv driven passed/ over it hundreds of times on i84 but could never really tell what it was.
So I present to you Malad Gorge! Pretty impressive actually!! And to think Iv driven over it for years?! Malad Gorge is steeped with history and is really fascinating! Some fun facts: The water fall is called the "Devil's Washbowl" and it was created by volcanic activity and erosion.
In the 1900s escaped convicts hide in the Gorge for months. Only to be taken out in what sounds like a blazing gun show! 🤠💥 It's also home to a rare plant called Cow-pie Buckwheat. Of course since I have a Horticulture degree I had to find the specimen! Ha
Anyway, if your ever driving on i84 and are in the Hagerman valley area, stop and check it out! 😎👍🏻
