Hells Canyon and Clarkston, Oregon

Oct 19, 2017 - National Geographic Sea Bird


We’ve traveled more than 400 miles from the Pacific and are about 735-feet above sea level. We can take the National Geographic Sea Bird no farther up the shallow river, so we load into jet boats to travel another 35 miles and 300-feet in elevation to the confluence of the wild Salmon River in Idaho. What an expedition!
