At one time Shoshone Falls was one of the most spectacular waterfalls in the West. Here at Twin Falls, in southern Idaho, the Snake River turns northward, making its way toward a rendezvous with the Columbia in northeast Washington. Reduced to a trickle with years of drought and irrigation diversions, the falls are seen here at a tenfold reduction. Occasionally, plentiful snow and spring rainfall turn this 212 foot marvel into a 1000 foot wide torrent.
