Behold, the Niagara of the West

Shoshone Falls puts on a wild and wet display Wednesday afternoon, as some 12,000 cubic feet per second of water flowing in the Snake River cascades down a 212-foot cliff at Twin Falls. The falls, referred to as the ?Niagara of the West,? is grander this month than it has been in a decade. A wet winter in the region has prompted the Bureau of Reclamation to release large volumes of water into the Snake from Palisades Reservoir, on the Idaho-Wyoming border. Excellent viewing is expected to continue through the weekend, although large crowds could cause delays. Last weekend, more than 3,000 vehicles from numerous states visited Shoshone Falls Park.
