Idaho. On the Snake River, and the bridge does tower,
over the Perrine Dam provides irrigation and power;
four hundred eighty-six feet it is, high above,
bungee jumpers have found their first love.
But the city is named for the water that falls every day,
over Shoshone Falls and is the reason that we stay;
what a great place and the desert made fruitful;
the falls make music, America the Beautiful.
Top: The Perrine Bridge, too high for me
Middle: Shohone Falls in the Spring
Bottom: The falls during a drier time, drop is 221 feet
