Base Jumping off of the Perrine Bridge (not participating just watching)
This is a pic of the Perrine Bridge. You have to drive over it to get to our house. It is 486 ft. above the Snake River below. It also spans the gorge that Evil Canevil tried (yes only tried) to jump in a rocket something or other a long time ago. (He ended up falling into the gorge and broke almost every bone in his body.)
This is one of the only legal places to base jump left in the U.S. so whenever there is a nice clear day there is usually jumpers (most of them wearing parachutes).
On the way to take a couple of the boys home we noticed that there were some people getting ready to jump. We decided to stop and watch. The boys loved it, I just hope Jake doesn't get any ideas! He shows definate signs of his dad's bravery and willingness to be a little on the too adventurous side!
By the way, the city you see in the background is Twin. Do you notice our complete lack of mountains? Sad!
