River, that is.
We spend most of the drive alongside the Snake River. Here, at the beginning of the canyon, the two mountains come down with their jagged edges to define a pretty placid river.
Maybe you’ve heard it’s quite a stretch of whitewater?
The photos above are in Wyoming, south of Jackson.
Our contact with the Snake has only gone downstream as far as the heart of downtown Idaho Falls. I was stunned by how they managed to highlight the river’s wild beauty while containing its waters within the city limits.
