The entire time we've been married (and dating, for me), we've lived very near the Snake River Canyon in south central Idaho. I think we love the canyon so much because when you're down inside, it's as though you're surrounded by mountains. The boys get excited as we drive across the bridges. Not too long ago Cooper announced that "Mom, if the bridge crashed down, then, no more going to town!" True, indeed- Twin Falls, the city we feed into most often, is on the south side of the Canyon and our house has been on the north. Anyhow...
Recently we ventured with our good friends down to Shoshone Falls. Since the water is so high right now, it is breathtaking! Even though this could be considered our backyard, we were certainly just like any other tourist in awe. I was struck that this is a place we'll remember.
Stephen and I would drive down here when were dating- he'd try to show off his fishing skills and I'd sit tucked up on the rocks (the fishing was quickly forgotten in favor of kissing I do believe...) ;)
Noisy? Huh, what? The boys were so fascinated and, unfortunately, so fearless too!
We have loved this place. It has meant lots of good times for our family, from archery shoots to fishing to swimming illegally to picnics and just because. We love the real mountains that we're excited to be closer to, but we'll always remember the Snake River Canyon. This won't be our last trip during high water with some of our favorite south central Idahoans!
