The Sunday Blast from the Past

August 24, 2006, found me camped at Hell's Gate State Park on the Idaho - Washington border. My reason for staying there was to take a two hundred mile jet boat ride through Hell's Canyon.

Hell's Canyon is the deepest canyon in the United States...yes, even deeper than the grand canyon.

It was a very enjoyable and scenic trip, and of course, the boat's pilot made sure we all got soaking wet on the return trip while going through some rapids.

Wildlife was abundant along the way. There were also quite a few forest fires that summer in the area.

The boat slowly went past this fire fighting helicopter that was filling with water to transport over the hills to the fire.
Thanks for stopping by....talk to you later, Judy
