Sitting with the dogs while visiting Shoshone Falls
Who knew there was a waterfall in the United States taller than Niagara Falls? I didn’t! Shoshone Falls is 212 feet tall and 900 feet wide and is one of the largest natural waterfalls in the United States. We were there in April 2019 and were just AMAZED at its size and beauty!

We were on our way toward Oregon to begin our venture north to Alaska. When I was looking to find a place to spend a few days on our journey, I found scenic location. I’m still amazed at the beauty of this place in Shoshone, Idaho!

The Falls water flow can shift significantly. In the website about the Falls (, it says

The flow of the Shoshone Falls is dependent on many variables. One of which is the amount of snowfall our region receives each winter. On years with heavy snowfalls, Shoshone Falls can reach flows upwards of 20,000 CFS (cubic feet per second). In a typical year, the spring flows at Shoshone Falls will peak between 10,000 and 12,000 CFS.

Shoshone Falls is just beautiful!!!! If you are ever in the area… try to see it!
