The Snake River and Hell's Canyon

The Snake River flows from the Intermountain West and the southern slopes of Yellowstone National Park, to the Pacific Northwest, joining with the Columbia River before reaching the Pacific Ocean. The Snake River consists of a scenic float past the Grand Tetons, an 8 mile whitewater run near Jackson Hole, Wyoming, and then a long run through the "Magic Valley" of southern Idaho before reaching the border with Oregon and plunging through the deepest river gorge in the United States, Hell's Canyon.
