Hell’s Canyon and Clarkston, Oregon

Oct 21, 2017 - National Geographic Sea Bird


Well one thing’s for certain–it’s all down hill from here. We began our expedition in Clarkston, and then traveled in expedition landing crafts upstream another 35 miles through shallow water and raging rapids. After meeting the confluence of the wild Salmon River flowing into the Snake River, we traveled down 1,000-feet to sea level, 400-miles away. To get the full experience of these photos, view them from the passenger seat of a convertible car driving fast down a winding road.
