Hells Canyon and Snake River

Sep 24, 2018 - National Geographic Quest


This morning we explored via jet boats the Snake River into Hells Canyon.  Under sunny skies, we observed mule deer, wild turkeys, rocky mountain bighorn sheep, and the stunning scenery of the canyon.  With our well-versed drivers, we learned of the human history, natural history and geology of this austere landscape.  It was a magnificent day to be exploring from a river vantage point.
