Ahhh...Home Sweet Home! Did you miss me??! Well, I found out that there are some really beautiful places almost as awesome as my living room view of the Wasatch Mountains...Yes, back from Idaho and a great adventure, it was. I can't go into details about it though...you will have to wait until RG puts up her post on it (update!! It's up) on the Outdooress page...so, be sure to check that out the next little while (NOW!). What I can tell you is that I stopped somewhere on my way home and it was an incredible sight...The Shoshone Falls out of Twin Falls, ID.
The falls are known as the Niagara Falls of the west and is one the most impressive views along the famous Snake River. With the waterfalls being nearly 1500 feet wide with water dropping a staggering 212 feet it is even a longer drop than the Niagara Falls which drops 176 feet. The Snake River Canyon is also the canyon that Evil Knievel tried to jump in 1974 with his Sky-Cycle. Since he couldn’t get permission to jump part of the Grand Canyon he bought land next to the Snake River and set the jump up at that location. The jump was totally unsuccessful but not fatal. His shoot opened right after take off, the wind caught it and slammed his bike to the ground next to the river, 600 feet below. Although it could have been tragic, Evil Knievel walked away with jut minor injuries. Just looking at the terrain...you can see that this would be a pretty crazy, ugh...insane stunt to try to pull off!!!
Well, back to work this week...got to get caught up and all of that good stuff...catch you on the flip side! And hopefully, I can post some more pictures of the trip very shortly...stay tuned.
