Berney, Nick and I rode through and spent one night in the canyon. It was part of a four day ride through Washington, Idaho, and Oregon. Hell's canyon was the most lovely part of the trip. Some of those turns are hairy at high speeds. It started snowing on us when we stopped at the overlook.
I have been to Hells Canyon with family and friends, multiple times, first with my dad in 1998. From riding in jet boats to hiking on the canyon slopes, visiting Hells Canyon has always been an awe inspiring experience.
"Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan "press on" has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race."
