For Madge's Weekly Top Shot, I was able to capture scenery we are so fortunate to experience on a regular basis.
Yesterday was a beautiful day in this part of Oregon, and it was perfect for a drive back into my home county of Wallowa and south to Joseph and Wallowa Lake with two of my great-nieces. Along the drive, The Seven Devils mountains of Idaho to the east seemed so close. (Actually, as the crow flies, the mountains were about 35 miles away.)
Hells Canyon is a 10-mile (16 km) wide canyon located along the border of eastern Oregon, eastern Washington and western Idaho in the United States. It is part of the Hells Canyon National Recreation Area and is North America's deepest river gorge at 7,993 feet (2,436 m), (although mountain He Devil - being the reference for the canyon's depth - is more than five miles away and not perceivable from the river).
