Since the announcement was made on the Southern Idaho Tourism website in May, locals are growing more and more excited about the opportunity to host jumpers from across the globe in this first ever organized competition in Twin Falls.
A well executed backflip, followed by a textbook landing by one of the day's jumpers, provides a unique angle of both the bridge and the activity itself, and at the same time is a stark reminder of how tiny human beings are compared to nature.
There are some things that can only happen in Twin Falls. Here's an example. A guy on top of a truck going 45 mph across the Perrine Bridge jumps off. Yep, that happened and I have the picture to prove it.
I live in Twin Falls yet I'm terrified of heights. Makes perfect sense, right? With that fact in mind, I have created a playlist of what I would love to have in my headphones if I were to ever BASE jump off the Perrine. This will never happen, but let's play pretend.
