Chinese Stairs, Twin Falls, ID
When the railroad was building the Shoshone line through southern Idaho they had a LOT of Chinese immigrants working on the line. These immigrants (don't know if all or just some) lived down in the canyon right next to Shoshone falls, basically in the cliffside. They built rock walls down into the canyon (which were used for the road that is there now) and they built stairs and walkways into the cliffside. The stairs and walkways are hidden now, forgotten, grown over with brush and nettle and trees, but I know someone who knew where they were :).
