Niagara Springs Homeschool Field Trip





This week we enjoyed a fun outing to Niagara Springs with our group of homeschooling friends. To say the water was "brisk" is certainly an understatement! But in my opinion it was worth the 20 minute drive to this little known local gem in order to wade, swim and have algae wars in water that was completely crystal clear! Clean water with good visibility seems to be a rare commodity in the Magic Valley so our family usually ends up swimming in the Snake river or, yes, on rare occasion, the irrigation canal at Grandpa's house. By the way, I read online that Niagara Springs is the reappearance of the Lost River after it's long underground trek. That is interesting to think about....
