“Pic of the Week”. June 13, 2014: Shoshone Falls, Idaho

2014 23a June 7 Shoshone Falls, Snake River Canyon, Twin Falls

Known as the “Niagara Falls of the west”,  Shoshone Falls is a lovely cascade situated in the desert just east of Twin Falls, Idaho.   The falls are 212 feet (65m) tall and about 900 feet (275 m) wide.  At this point the Snake River drops in a series of steps and the result, as you can see, is beautiful!  A bonus is the brilliant rainbow you’ll be guaranteed to see in the mist on a sunny day.

Stroll along the edge of the Snake River Gorge and you’ll find a natural arch.  If you look downriver you’ll see where legendary stunt-devil, Evil Knievel, attemped his jump across the Canyon.  The Snake River Canyon and Shoshone Falls are natural treasures that are not visited nearly often enough.
