To Hell's Canyon and Back - Photo Essay

Several weeks ago I was extremely fortunate to have the opportunity to fish the mighty Snake River in Hell's Canyon on the Oregon, Idaho border.  My uncle has ventured there with friends every year for over a decade, and this year I made it a point to join them.  This was my first visit to the canyon and I already am looking for a way to get back there, ASAP. 

Hell's Canyon stands as the deepest canyon in North America.  At one point it's a 6,000 feet from the tops of the mountains to the river.  The caynon Is also one of the most rugged and inaccessible pieces of country you could ever imagine.  There are only three roads that enter the gorge that I know of, and no cell service or much of anything else for that matter.  Yeah, it's an awesome place to say the least.  I hope the pictures do it justice even though I know they won't. 

Oh, and the fishing was pretty darn good to.  I forgot how much I love smallmouth bass fishing.
