The Salmon River

on October 17, 2013

postcards_4Perhaps one of my all-time favourite US cards, this one comes from Lenny in Idaho, showing some of the spectacular scenery in the state. Here, the Salmon river winds through a canyon on its way to meet the Snake river before it hits the Pacific. This view is just stunning, what I wouldn’t give to live somewhere like this! Lenny tells me the river is also known as The River of No Return. Fascinating!

  1. Very cool. The Snake River is a tributary of the Columbia River which passes through Portland before emptying into the Pacific at Astoria (I’ll be there this weekend).
