Photographer's Note

On the way back, we stopped at Cache Creek Ranch for a rest stop. This is the ancient root cellar* of the ranch.

"Cache Creek Ranch is an administrative site [of Wallowa-Whitman National Forest,] located at the northern-most portal on the Snake River within the Hells Canyon National Recreation Area. Historically part of the Dobbin and Huffman Sheep Co. that flourished until the 1930s, it now serves as a shaded oasis for river travelers in the scenic portion of the Snake River.

As a main stopping point for river visitors, the ranch is staffed year-round by a facility host. Visitor information and exhibits are available inside the house interpreting unique aspects of the canyon's natural and cultural history." (US Department of Agriculture Forest Service)

*In response to some of the comments, I will add the Wikipedia definition of root cellar: "A root cellar (American English) or earth cellar (British English) is a structure, usually underground or partially underground, used for storage of vegetables, fruits, nuts, or other foods."
