BASE Jumping in Boise, Idaho
Unless you're an advanced professional willing to put your life on the line, you'll want to take a spectator seat for this one: at Boise’s Perrine Bridge, daredevil BASE jumpers plunge 500 feet into darkness off of the highest bridge in Idaho. During the day, visitors will be thunderstruck by the vast Snake River Canyon, site of Evel Knievel’s failed 1974 stunt. At night, jumpers throw caution to the wind and plummet down the bridge at the speed of about 100 miles per hour. The 1,500-foot Perrine Bridge on Route 93 is the only location open to BASE jumpers year-round. After landing, you’ll have to climb the canyon wall or hike along the river to a turnaround point in the point — in pitch darkness.
