That is, runs thru the Hell's Canyon, deepest gorge in North America.

This is the view from the last dam in Idaho, the Hell's Canyon Dam. There are 17 dams creating hydroelectric power and providing irrigation that has turned arid lands into highly productive farmland. The Snake flows 1078 miles from it's source in Yellowstone and Teton Parks till it joins the Columbia river at Burbank WA.

A quote from Julie Andrews eloquently touches how I feel about this mighty river:
"Whenever I think of my birthplace, Weiser Idaho, my reference first and foremost is the river. I love the smell of the river; love its history, its gentleness. I was aware of its presence from my earliest years. Its majesty centered me, calmed me, was a solace to a certain extent."
However, Julie's river was the Thames river.

Hope your weekend is off to a great start!

A section of one one of the West's major rivers, the Snake, taken between Farewell Bend and Weiser ID (where I was born). The Oregon Trail is close nearby.

At 1,078 miles long, it is the largest tributary of the Columbia River, in turn the largest North American river that empties into the Pacific Ocean. Formed by the confluence of three tiny streams on the southwest flank of Two Oceans Plateau in Yellowstone National Park the Snake starts out flowing west and south into Jackson Lake. The Snake is the river running thru the Tetons, famous for it's beauty and many curves.

Have a wonderful summer weekend!

Jasper Park's major river flows north with Pyramid Peak in the distance rising slightly above the low clouds.

"The Athabasca River travels 1,231 km (765 mi) before draining into the Peace-Athabasca Delta near Lake Athabasca south of Fort Chipewyan. From there, its waters flow north as Rivière des Rochers, then joining the Peace River to form the Slave River that empties into Great Slave Lake and discharges through the Mackenzie River system into the Arctic Ocean." Wiki

Thanks for taking a look and for any comments, faves and suggestions!

Have a wonderful week!

The Toad River flows by a backwater lake under stormy skies. Rivers and lakes everywhere in northern British Columbia. With frequent stormy weather. Moody and magnificent.

Enjoy a wonderful Wednesday!
