Taking Advantage Of The Snake River Canyon
Twin Falls, Idaho (KMVT-TV) - When you think of Twin Falls what comes to mind...?
For the most part, the first thing that comes to mind is the Snake River Canyon.
Now that's all well and good for tourist and passer–bys, but for residents living in and around Twin Falls the canyon represents much more than just a beautiful view.
With the summer season in the full swing of things we wanted to know how local residents in Southern Idaho are taking advantage of the canyon the rim and its many parks.
“When we take the kids out… we went out to Shoshone Falls, we’ve taken them hiking, taken them Swimming”.
“I like swimming in the pool and stuff… it’s really cold.”
-Said Will, Brandy and Seth a local family from Twin Falls.
“Head back to those rocks and start climbing… so some rock climbing or bouldering.”
-said local teen Marcelino Arenz
“We like to come and swim.”
“Just lay-out in the sun… get as much summer as we can.”
-said local teens Ashley Cox and Yesenia Martinez.
A new trend that seems to be growing larger and larger every year is the use of kayaks down on the water.
This year there are 2 different locations were you can rent a boat and float the water.
First is down at Centennial Park and the second is a small shed down at Dierkes Lake.
At both locations you can rent a boat for $15 for the first hour with every additional hour only running you $5.
