Niagara of the West

Shoshone Falls...shaped by a flood that ripped through the canyon about 15,000 years ago.

The falls tumble 212 feet to the canyon floor (50 feet higher than Niagara Falls).

Successfully ahead of the thunderstorm, I resumed my plan to check out Shoshone Falls. I'm glad I did! Although, this time of year, the river's flow is diverted for hydroelectric power production and for irrigation, the grandeur of the falls was striking! Flynn enjoyed free time to run in the park and, although we endured a little rainfall, it felt wonderful to stretch our legs!
