Pouring through the Henry Fork Caldera, which is part of the greater Island Park Caldera, the geology of the area dates back more than 1.3 million years when one of seven known supervolcanos erupted starting the creation of the Yellowstone Caldera. Needless to say, Mesa Falls is rich in history. Given the geology and park and huck nature of the falls it’s no wonder that so many people stop by the magnificent waterfall to take a quick look or partake in recreational activities. A couple weeks ago Dan McCain took a trip back to is home state of Montana and took a look at Mesa.
