The Snake River extends 1,078 miles from Wyoming, through Idaho and Oregon, ending in Washington state.  I have passed over it in many places during my trip.  As I left Boise to head east towards Wyoming I passed over it twice on just a 5 mile stretch of Interstate 84.  The photo I posted a few weeks ago (from Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming) was very near the beginning of the river.  The pictures that follow in this post are all from Idaho.

And when I got to Idaho Falls, just south of where I was staying in Rexburg, they had this magnificent waterfall downtown which was built to draw water off the side of the Snake River.
