We are lucky to spy other wild life as we continue farther into Hell's Canyon. Our guide tells stories of the old West and how life along the Snake River was for early settlers. Sheer solid rock cradles the river at the bottom of the canyon, holding in the heat of the day. There are old mine shafts into the sides. Some entrances can be seen while others are back off the river among the rocks.
On the return trip to the dock, our guide stops at Buffalo Eddy, which is the deepest part of Hell's Canyon, to show us Native American petroglyphs. This is just one more amazing sight that I can keep close to my heart and remember I was there. A trip down the Snake River has so much to offer. Do yourself a favor and take advantage of a jet boat tour. You'll see things that you won't soon forget. My memories vividly return while looking through these pictures to share with you.
Publisher Lyn Fuchs adds this endorsement: Before encountering Tonya's books, I used to be too shy to tell my partner that I wanted to include a whip, a donkey, or her sister in a tender moment. Now, I'm fully able to express my emotional needs, just like that reptilian hermaphrodite who wrote those Mars/Venus books. Thanks Tonya for sharing so much of yourself with me, both on and beneath the covers - of your books I mean.
