The Mesa Falls Scenic Byway (ID 47) is a 29 mile road that runs east of US 20 and connects with US 20 at both ends, Ashton, ID on the south end and 9 miles south of Island Park, ID on the north end. The Mesa Falls Scenic Byway also intersects the Teton Scenic Byway just east of Ashton and both are great roads to ride.
The Henrys Fork River runs through the Caribou-Targhee National Forest and is a tributary to the Snake River. The river cuts through the basalt rock and surrounding landscape to create two eye-popping waterfalls.
We took US 20 from West Yellowstone to Island Park where we stopped for breakfast at Pond's Lodge in Island Park. The restaurant/gas station is a nice establishment with friendly service. The log siding building is charming and it has sportsman decor. More importantly they served a great breakfast.
