Viewpoint of the Snake River

There is a viewpoint of the Snake River that offers a spectacular view, just outside the small town of Hansen, Idaho.

Hansen Bridge

For thousands of years the only way to cross the Snake River and this gorge was by boat or trying to wade or swim across (both very dangerous). In 1919 a suspension bridge was built here at a cost of $100,000. There is a nice view of the replacement bridge at the viewpoint. Sometimes there are local Indians here selling jewelry and other native crafts.
