During the last week in May and first week in June, I went to Boise Idaho to visit my sister and do some sightseeing. Idaho has some of the most interesting geology and geography of any state and so combining family with hiking and picture taking and geology seemed like a perfect fit. Unfortunately it rained a good part of the trip, plus with the snow melt, the rivers up are full and the people who manage water flow in the Snake River weren't sure what to do with all the water. Fortunately for us, they are on the other side of the continental divide.
The last couple of days of my trip the weather did clear out and my sister and I took a road trip to Shoshone Falls which is about 120 miles East of Boise. These falls are 18 ft taller than Niagara-not sure how the flow rate compares- but the Shoshone Falls were running at about 18,000 cubic feet a second. I put together a little slide show showing the falls and the surrounding Snake River area.
I couldn't get this to embed in my post so here is the link to the Flickr slide show:
