National Archives caption: “Breakfast at campsite on the Snake River in Hells Canyon. With the growing popularity of river trips, overuse of scarce campgrounds is becoming a problem. This outfitter prefers propane stoves to firewood for cooking since the stoves cause no environmental damage, 05/1973.” Photo by Boyd Norton.1

Hells Canyon is a 10-mile (16 km) wide canyon located along the border of eastern Oregon, eastern Washington and western Idaho in the United States. It is North America’s deepest river gorge at 7,993 feet (2,436 m) and part of the Hells Canyon National Recreation Area.

The canyon was carved by the waters of the Snake River, which flows more than 1 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. Most of the area is inaccessible by road
