This is the visitor center not far from the bridge.
The bridge not only serve as a path to bring people across the Snake River, but adventure seekers also use it for BASE jumping with parachutes. BASE stands for objects to jump from such as a Building, Antenna, Span, or Earth.
I don't know much about parachuting, but at an elevation of 486 feet, is that enough time to open a chute and land safely?
A few easy steps take you right up, but watch out, it is very windy!
To the left is a monument to the daredevil Evel Knievel in his failed attempt to jump across the canyon in his a steam-powered rocket in 1974. He didn't make it very far across before his parachute opened and he drifted to the ground below. Locals told me he left town in the middle of the night still owing the townspeople and others money so he is not a well-liked figure so I was surprised there was a monument in his name.
