Permits Needed before Anyone Jumps the Snake River

TWIN FALLS, Idaho (AP) — Five groups are hoping to make the jump that stymied daredevil Evel Knievel across the Snake River Canyon. The Idaho Department of Lands is considering applications for a two-year lease on land near Twin Falls that includes the original mound of dirt Knievel used for his failed attempt to cross the canyon in 1974.

Department spokeswoman Emily Callihan told The Times-News that only one applicant will be awarded the right to use the land. The winning bid will be chosen Sept. 27. The lease requires an annual $25,000 rent plus a portion of revenue generated on the land. The applicants also have to get approval from the city of Twin Falls before the lease goes into effect Nov. 1.
