The I.B. Perrine Bridge-Twins-Twin Falls, Idaho; USA by 


“The Twins.”- Designed and created by David Clemons of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho for “Idaho Commission on the Arts.”
The I.B. Perrine Bridge was built in 1927. “The bridge is named for Twin Falls pioneer I.B. Perrine, who is known for irrigation and electric power development in Idaho.”

“The bridge is one of the few places in the world used for B.A.S.E parachute and bungee jumping.”

“East of the bridge, is a large dirt ramp that Evil Knevil used for his unsuccessful 1974 attempt to jump the Snake River Canyon on his rocket-powered cycle. Nearly 20,000 people, including 200 reporters, watched the cycle, powered by 5,000 pounds of thrust lift off the ramp at 350 mph. A malfunction caused the drogue chute to open prematurely, while the cycle was still on the ramp. Before the main chute opened, Knevil climbed 1000 feet above the ramp. Then the cycle, with Evel in it, fell to the rocks 470 feet below the rim. Knevil suffered facial cuts, minor bruises and major disparagement.”

Photography is the only way to capture “time in a bottle” and the everlasting scent of the moment.

    Great picture Brenda and very well described, some people need to push the limit till they drop, others never take off, I understand the thrill and adrenaline to do stuff like this, and… life’s to precious and I prefer safer challenge, but hey my hat to him to have the guts to do what he did, that demand a lots of courage, Wish you all the best for 2012

  • Hello Joel,
    Thank You so much for the comment. I agree with you about treasuring my life and keeping it safe. This Bridge is one of few bridges in the United States that allows base jumping. While it is fun to watch the jumpers each year, there is ALWAYS at least one death and it saddens me to know that the thrill of a few moments is worth losing life over….I am the better safe than sorry type of girl….

    Love your POV here,…..I was watching,..on TV,…the day Evil Knevil tried that jump,….

  • WOW, this is amazing for me to hear. I was not born yet when he attempted this jump and as a matter of fact I had no idea I where he attempted this jump until I moved here from Washington.~! That is so neat that you were watching. I have never been able to find any video of that jump. I tried when I loaded this picture and all I could find any, so i just loaded a pic instead…
