(Made the detour and took these pictures especially for my two favorite men: Jason and Dad.)
I'm in Twin Falls, Idaho this week staying less than a mile from the site where Evel Knievel tried (and failed) to jump the Snake River Canyon in 1971 so my colleague and I took a quick detour to snap a few pictures.
This is the very unassuming monument (looks like the metal plaque part fell out) near the bridge but still 2 miles from the actual jump site.
Here's the dirt ramp in the distance from which Evel jumped his rocketcycle.
See the little waterfall?
Here's a picture of the ONLY bridge in the U.S. that it is legal to BASE jump off of. Here's some dudes jumping and landing. 486 feet!
Letting the chute open first...
Walking back up the canyon trail - they look so tiny!!
And an Idaho recap wouldn't be complete without a shot of the Mormon temple.
