|Lazy day on the Snake River|

Rick and I got up early this morning to head down to Hell's Canyon Dam on the Snake River. It was my first trip down to the canyon in probably 6-8 years. The weather forecast was for sunshine - a perfect fall outing in the planning!
EARLY meant we left Baker City around 5:20 am - a good decision because it put us into the canyon BEFORE the sun rose in the east. Driving is always tough heading east in the early morning otherwise! A huge moon lit up the western sky behind us. We stopped briefly at Copperfield Park to use the restroom, and then the final 20 or so miles on the Idaho side of the river to the dam. Brownlee Reservoir was absolutely calm, reflecting the hills beautifully.

While the fishing wasn't successful, the day certainly was. It was beautiful, warm eventually, and a perfect way to spend a fall day!
