Our 7th May Saturday excursion was to the Shoshone Falls. The experience starts from the drive, because of the interesting scenery along the highway. Also, because of the high elevation here, the clouds feel really close to us. A very therapeutic way to start the day 🙂
It was a generally rainy day, as you can see from the pictures of the clouds. Thank God that it wasn’t raining during the window of time when we were at the Shoshone Falls and the Dierkes Lake.
The Shoshone Falls is 212 Feet high, and is 45 feet higher than Niagara Falls. It is also sometimes called the “Niagara of the West”. This period is one of the best times to go, according to some reviews on Trip Advisor, as the water is diverted for irrigation in later months, leading to a smaller volume of water flow at the falls.
Here is a video and some pictures of the beautiful falls. It was really quite breathtaking. Unfortunately my photography skills really don’t do much justice to the view!
