Today on our expedition of discovery we ventured into the heart of America’s deepest canyon: the Hells Canyon National Recreational Area! Truly a landscape of superlatives, we journeyed 55 miles up the Snake River in special shallow-draft jet boats to marvel at columnar basalts, golden fields of poa grasses, sparkling granite-sand beaches, and wildlife abounding. Pictographs survive here from a time even before the Nez Perce, to whom this area is homeland. Lewis and Clark and the Corps of Discovery found a similar environment & wildlife as their course took them toward the Columbia River, and finally the Pacific Ocean.
