You might remember the Snake River Canyon country as the place where on September 20th, 1974, the daredevil Evel Knievel attempted to jump the ravine on a rocket powered motorcycle. The jump failed when his parachute prematurely deployed and the wind carried him back toward the side where he took off. He plunged to the bottom of the canyon and was seriously injured.
The Perrine Memorial Bridge over the Snake River Canyon is notable for the B.A.S.E. jumpers who can jump from the bridge every day of the year legally. There is an excellent landing area and the services of a boat crew to retrieve them after every jump. It is considered B.A.S.E. jumping paradise and the perfect place to learn. No thanks—I’ll pass!
