Meg and I enjoyed our annual trip camping trip high above Hells Canyon, near Hat Point in Wallowa County.  The Seven Devils mountains in Idaho rise above the Snake River, making Hells Canyon the deepest gorge in the US.  The view is one of those “million dollar” experiences..  If this were private property accessible by an easy road,  a five star resort would be perched here, hosting hundreds of people a day..  Instead, amidst gorgeous wildflowers, skies and clouds, science and tranquility, Meg and I rested in these views and feelings alone.
