This Gallery is  our travels to Northeastern Oregon including many Snake River Photographs.

      Gazing across Hell's Canyon, the Indians named the mountain peaks the "Seven Devils". Surely the devil made such treacherous country!   But sights like the "Snake River Peniplane" soften the geography for the viewer.  One can see burned areas that have become a sea of "Fireweed".  These burns are protected by the government and cannot be cleared or logged.
     These Brownlee Dam pictures show  the tame Snake River which prompts " The Fisherman" and"The Boater" to use the "Road to Travel". Upstream one may ponder "The Snake in Solitude" or take the perspective of the "Grasses View". To those who are "At Home" in the "Imnaha Valley" the"Imnaha Store", "Imnaha Church"   and  "Imnaha Horses"  are  essential elements to life in the area. Twisting along beside the road to Imnaha is "Little Sheep Creek";  even the tree must twist in an effort to "Bend and adapt".
     A bit south, in "Farewell Bend" the Snake River used to water cornfields by the age old method of ditch irrigation.  This scene is long gone...a motel is there now. 
     Finally, the "Nyssa Sunset" lulls the community to nightfall.
