Twin Falls

We took a southern Canadian route back to the U.S. along Crowsnest Pass.  It was a beautiful day, sunny, and we enjoyed the beautiful Canadian Rockies landscape.  Happened to go through Frank Slide area, which was quite a site, so many years after the rock slide.  Makes you kind of wonder what's holding the rest of rocks up on the mountain, but the waitress where we had lunch assured us that they monitor the mountain for any signs that there will be another slide.

Spent the night in Missoula where we caught this awesome sunset.  We were trying to get to Twin Falls for Dale to catch the air show there.  Had a couple of long days driving, but arrived in Twin Falls in plenty of time.  

We happened to catch some people getting ready to parasail off the Perrine Bridge, and so decided to wait and watch.  They didn't disappoint.  It was hard to catch them as it happened much too quickly.  Lots of preparation for a short ride!
We spent the afternoon checking out Shoshone Falls which seemed pretty spectacular despite claims that water levels are low due to irrigation.  
We're ready to start heading home and will make a beeline for Willard.
