Just to prove we are tough we hiked over 5 miles and back up Hell’s Canyon. Some discussion about whether the name refers to the temperature. We started with an overcast sky at 83 degrees about 1pm and returned about 5pm with the sky sunny and the thermometer indicating it was 102 degrees. Dennis said he had the best beer he ever had in the tiny piece of shade we found. I think it was 7:30pm before we could even think of cooking dinner or setting up our tent, Due to the fantastic weather we had the walk-in campground to ourselves. 🙂 I jumped in the Snake River right after our hike, water is a little chilly, but I was comfortable the rest of the night.
We fled our comfy campsite by 9:30 am due to excessive head.
