Now is the time to check out Shoshone Falls

 Shoshone Falls on a sunny day.
J. Stephen Conn

The waterfall known as the The Niagara of the West is showing off right now, as large amounts of water flow over Shoshone Falls.

The falls, which were quiet for a few weeks, are getting a boost as the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation releases more water over Milner Dam to help push fish downstream.

Now is the time to check out the falls at Shoshone Falls Park just east of Twin Falls. John Hildreth, the principal engineer in Idaho Power's water resources group joined Idaho Matters to talk more.

As Senior Producer of our live daily talk show Idaho Matters, I’m able to indulge my love of storytelling and share all kinds of information (I was probably a Town Crier in a past life). My career has allowed me to learn something new everyday and to share that knowledge with all my friends on the radio.
