Twin Falls, ID High 78 Low 60
We saw our first true colors of Fall today.
After leaving Evel and the Base Jumpers behind, we drove over to see Shoshone Falls.
The guy at the entrance to the park told us that we were going to be disappointed because there is no water coming over the Falls. We told him that was okay but we wanted to see the area anyhow. He asked us if we had an America the Beautiful Pass, and of course we do. So he let us into the park without paying the $3 fee. Since this is a city park I’m not sure if it works that way all the time or if he just felt sorry for us old folks.
We weren’t disappointed. True, there wasn’t a lot of water coming over the Falls, but it was still beautiful. You just need to use your imagination a little more.
Not sure what these birds are but there were lots of them perched on the rocks. Are they pigeons?
These falls are actually more than 50 feet higher than Niagara Falls and are often referred to as the Niagara of the West. I took the next picture from the internet and it shows what the falls look like in the Spring. We sure do want to see that.
Today we are headed to Elko, NV. I’m planning on a Walmart kind of night. Not sure what my internet access is going to be for the next four nights so if you don’t hear from me, everything is good.
