The Elusive Falls

Last weekend we went in search of Jump Creek Waterfall. I woke up excited that we were finally able to visit this small local attraction. After printing the directions from Google Maps (which after the fact we found out were a mistake) we were on our way. Everything was going great until we passed the small town of Marsing and our directions started to make less and less sense. We guessed at what our directions said and took a left hand turn down a highway. We ended up driving to Oregon before we figured out we were going the wrong way! We drove down some dirt roads still searching for the right road without any luck. To make a long story short, we never did find the elusive falls. :P After we got back home, I looked at the map online and found we were only 1-2 miles away from the waterfall!

Soooo. Instead of posting photos of the falls, I will post other two photos from our journey.

We pulled off the highway to take a peek at a scenic overlook and spotted these two guys. The first photo is a Mormon Cricket. According to wikipedia they can get up to 3 inches in length.

We spotted this lizard at the same location.
