I haven’t been to New York and now I have one less reason to go. Shoshone Falls in Idaho is often called the Niagara of the West and I am plenty impressed. It is 212 feet tall by 1000 feet wide. Here she is at 6500 cubic feet per second. Agriculture has diverted much of the water from the Snake River. I have read about historical flows in the 30,000 cfs range. One story tells about how settlers heard the falls from the Oregon Trail several miles away and came to see what the source of the noise was. Shoshone Falls effectively divides the Snake into upper and lower sections. Impeded by this massive obstacle, the salmon used to gather at the base of the falls in massive numbers. I’d love to have been around to see that.
