Sunday Bridges - Twin Falls, ID


This is a bridge in Twin Falls, ID. It spans the beautiful Snake River Canyon.


"Twin Falls became the center of national attention in September 1974 thanks to an attempt by Evel Knievel to jump the Snake River Canyon in a specially-modified rocket cycle. Watched by millions on television, the attempt ultimately failed due to high winds and a premature deployment of Knievel's parachute. The foundation of the launch ramp, which lies on private land, can still be seen." Wikipedia

Great shot of the bridge Pat. We had planned to see it when we were in Idaho last spring but we got sidetracked at the last minute and missed it.

Those huge and high bridges usually take my breath away. Great story about EK.

Driving up to a bridge such as this would have me pulling over to photograph - and catch my breath - before crossing!
