Snake River Canyon
|Photo by Ben Prepelka
Passing through four western states, the 1000 mile long Snake River spends the majority of its time in Idaho. Starting out in western Wyoming and Yellowstone National Park, the Snake is among the largest rivers in North America. Now tamed by 15 major dams, evidence still exists of the powerful forces which the Snake River once held. Along with one of the deepest canyons on the continent, (Hells Canyon), the Snake River Canyon nearby the city of Twin Falls is another favorite tourist destination. The big draw in Twin Falls is one of the most spectacular waterfalls in the west. A wet winter turns a springtme Shoshone Falls into a 1000 foot wide torrent as it drops 212 feet at Shoshone Falls Park.
