Twin Falls will be the largest city we visit this month with over 51,000 people. We thought this would be a nice first stop to get our coach organized as it's only about 165 miles from our home....and boy....did we organize! Well, Kim has done most of it while I slept in....zzzzzzzzzzzz.
The big attraction in Twin Falls is the Shoshone Falls. Here's a few photos of when the Snake River is really flowing over the falls and some with very little.
|We went here in the Fall to see the falls. I forgot that there's very little river flow during the autumn. Duh!|
|We went one time when there was so much mist we could hardly see the falls....but...|
|...but it made for some terrific rainbows.|
|The wind was blowing around 25mph. You can see how it is pushing the falls to the side.|
|Here's the overlook where you can view from above.|
Shoshone Falls is 212 high which is 36" higher than Niagara Falls and flows over a rim 900 feet wide. Niagara Falls is 185 feet and is 1,060 feet wide.
|We called to see if could get a tour but they don't have any. Rats.|
|We did not expect to see this in Twin Falls....it was right down the street from our RV park.|
|We buy their yoghurt because we like to support the local products.|
|You can see the Snake River. Everything to the right and left was scoured by the Lake Bonneville Flood! Over 400 feet high and 70mph!|
|You can see the canyon walls to the right and left where the flood topped out. Amazing.|
We did not know we would see so much in Twin Falls. But, it seems that no matter where we go, there's always more to see than what we believed. Life is grand!
|If we are not watching, Katie likes to chew on the jigsaw pieces. We find them later all mashed up on the floor.|
