Great Falls, Montana: Waterfalls
Visitors to Great Falls probably should have figured out before arrival that the city has a big waterfall. But that's actually incorrect; it has four of them. It used to have another, but a dam essentially covered up a small one.
Pictured is (are?) the Great Falls of the Missouri. That's Ryan Dam right behind it. It's a bit of a drive on an isolated road to get there, but you should see the Great Falls when in Great Falls. There's a viewing area on Island Park that has displays telling you what a great job the local power company is doing. Skip the signage; enjoy the view.
