BASE Jumping the Perrine

Some crazy people think it is fun to jump off the Perrine bridge in Twin Falls, Idaho with a piece of cloth strapped to their back.

They do the same thing at the New River Gorge in West Virginia.

Nice series of shots of the dare devils. I'll ride a big rollercoaster, but I won't do that. Thanks for sharing these shots.
PS That's a nice shot of the bridge.

Good shots. The one of the bridge is impressive

I'm amazed you held the camera steady. My legs would have turned to jelly just watching that

I've seen, and photographed, people jumping off of that bridge. But the people I saw jumped with their parachute still packed, holding the drogue and tossing it as they fell. I would think the risk of the chute getting tangled by being loose before the jump would be too great.
