Photographer's Note

We are further into our excursion in Hells Canyon. "Hells Canyon is a ten-mile-wide (16 km) canyon, located along the border of eastern Oregon, a small section of eastern Washington and western Idaho. Notably, Hells Canyon runs deeper than the better-known Grand Canyon in Arizona. The canyon was carved by the waters of the Snake River, which flows more than one mile (1.6 km) below the canyon's west rim on the Oregon side and 7,400 feet (2,300 m) below the peaks of Idaho's Seven Devils Mountains range to the east." (From Wikipedia)

One attraction of the canyon is the columnar basalt formations. Columnar basalt forms when thick lava cools slowly, fracturing along joints to form mostly hexagonal columns.

This was on the Idaho shore of the Snake River.
