Hells Canyon is the deepest gorge in North America, carved by the wild Snake River on the border of Idaho and Oregon. Photographer Boyd Norton led the battle to save Hells Canyon from a major dam that would have flooded this gorge. He helped draft legislation and testified at Congressional hearings to establish the Hells Canyon National Recreation Area and Wilderness.
