While staying in Clarkson, WA, we took a boat tour on the Snake River that would take us through the area known as Hells Canyon. This is a very popular area for recreation including remote camping, boating and rafting. Wildlife sightings is also a big part of the experience. This river has the deepest gorge in North America and is truly amazing. After passing thru the gorge, we stopped at a former ranch for lunch and enjoyed watching the river from ashore. Most of the property along the river can only be accessed from the river side.
The return trip was just as much fun. Our last stop was at a small state museum site manned by volunteers during the season. They stay on site for several weeks and then are relieved by the next group.
