This brisk and sunny morning we boarded jet boats in Clarkston, Washington, for a thrilling ride up the Snake River into Hells Canyon. For over two million years the Snake River has been carving its way down into the continent to form this wildly beautiful and remote canyon. Known for its magnificent views and dynamic geology, Hells Canyon is deeper even than the Grand Canyon. The rugged landscape that will by dry and brown by summer is now gloriously green and sports a variety of colorful wildflowers. We traveled into Hells Canyon, to the Snake River’s confluence with the Salmon River, the legendary River of No Return.
