NHD Photo of the Month

Each month the NHD web site will highlight a photo of a real-world hydrography feature that can be found in the NHD. Send your favorite photograph of a hydrography feature to the USGS and each month one will be selected for the web site. Take pictures of hydrography while hiking, boating, or on vacation. This is open to anyone wishing to participate. Entries should portray an existing NHD feature. Limit one photo per month per participant. Send digital photographs to the following email address:

This month's photo, taken by Danielle Bruno-Favreau, is of Shoshone Falls on the Snake River in Idaho. The photo was taken in a generally easterly direction on June 17, 2017. At 212 feet, the falls are higher than Niagara Falls, and often call the “Niagara of the West”. Due to Idaho’s very high water year, the falls were still roaring even in June!
