Hells Canyon

Sep 22, 2019 - National Geographic Quest


The first day of the trip started out with a high-speed trip up Hells Canyon. Everyone hopped on jet boats and the adventure began. Hells Canyon is a narrow section of the Snake river that winds through Oregon, Idaho, and Washington. The jet boat sails over rapids and flies through turns on the river, giving everyone the excitement they are looking for. The shoreline is dotted with mule deer, wild turkeys, and Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep. Bald and golden eagles soar overhead at the rim of the canyon. The six-hour expedition ends back in Clarkston, Washington and the day ends with wine tasting and enough food for a week!
