The top image is the canyon below Twin Falls and then Shoshone Falls. These large drops in the Snake River (212 feet for Shoshone) were gouged out by the Bonneville Lake Floods about 15000 years ago. A glacial finger broke and allowed the lake to fill this canyon and gouge it an estimated 6 times deeper. Use to play here as a child, guess I still am.
Three sketches from the local area. The lava rocks are magnified by the contrast in value with the snow.
