The valley hills hidden and pushed back behind the almost gone trails leading along the rivers length.
Up River Weather
Only a few miles up the snake river the mountains in the distance hold snow covered peaks still yet to thaw into to waters below raising the water levels for the season.
Between Two Mountains
On the right side we see the state of Oregon and on the left the state of Idaho sharing Hells Canyon and split by the snake river in this nature landscape photo.
Hidden In The Valley
Hidden centered between the peaks is the snake river that follows a 10 mile wide Hells Canyon.
Seeing the river wound back and forth across the landscape you can see how the river may have been named deeming it the "Snake River".
Dried red lanterns found along the sandy trails of Hells Canyon as the terrain mixes between beach front sands, desert cactus, and lush grasses.
The snake river holds massive ledges hundreds of feet high that in some areas you can look over the cliffs edge and feel the turning in your stomach from the drop off.
Cold On Top
Just a few miles away in a higher elevation the road into Hells Canyon holds fresh snow creating a massive change in weather.
Following the trail into Hells Canyon runs parallel with the Snake River offering the most scenic views to capture the best photos.
