    Historic Hansen Bridge

    by Basaic Written Feb 2, 2012

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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. The bridge is 900 feet long and is over 400 feet over the water below. There is a nice view of the replacement bridge (from 1966) at the viewpoint. Sometimes there are local Indians here selling jewelry and other native crafts.
