Twin Falls, Idaho: Impressive Photo

"Twin Falls"
Destinations360

" Twin Falls Idaho is the largest city in the Magic Valley area of Idaho. In addition to the many attractions in Twin Falls Idaho, including fishing and other outdoor activities, Twin Falls Idaho remains a popular destination for vacations of various types. One of the major attractions in Twin Falls Idaho is the Snake River Canyon, where in the 1970's stunt man Evil Knievel attempted to jump the wide canyon on his motor bike but was unsuccessful.

"The history of Twin Falls Idaho actually stretches back more than 10,000 years...."

The page is written with tourism in mind, so don't expect any deep and 'relevant' discussions there. For me, the chief appeal is that photo. It looks like a beautiful part of the world.

You sure that isn't a painting? It looks a little too good to be real.

Brigid,

I know what you mean: but yes, I'm fairly sure that we're looking at a photo. Made by someone with a good, solid tripod, a good camera, and a long shutter speed. Also the patience to wait for the right day, the right hour, and the right minute for the exposure.

I hate to disappoint all of you but this is such an enhanced photo. And it certainly doesn't look like this now. Take it from someone who's been stuck here for twenty years! If you come to Twin Falls now and see the Falls there will not be half the water coming over. It's very dry and dirty here. The people are rude and the city council is constantly tearing everything up. This is a Tree City USA city and yet they are continually tearing down beautiful, large trees that have nothing wrong with them. I could go on and write a novel about all of this; this small rant only scratches the surface of the very phony facade of Twin Falls, Idaho.

Anonymous,

I'm sorry to see that you feel that way.

About that idea: "...I could go on and write a novel...:" A fellow named Sinclair Lewis did that, and won Nobel Prize for Literature as a result.
