Description

Exterior. In this color image, the waters of Shoshone Falls cascade into the plunge pool below. A great mist rises from the plunge pool at center, and red rocks flank the falls on either side. Above the falls, the Snake River is dotted with red rocks, and in the distance as the river recedes into the distance, larger red rock facades are visible.
