This photo, taken from the golf course in the canyon, provides a good view of the rim-to-rim Perrine Bridge. At the dedication of the bridge in 1927, Hortense Perrine, widow of noted pioneer I. B. Perrine, christened the bridge as the Twin Falls-Jerome Bridge. Originally a toll was charged to pay for the construction costs. In 1976, the replacement of the bridge was dedicated as the I. B. Perrine Memorial Bridge, conforming with what locals had always called the crossing, despite the words of modest Mrs. Perrine.
