Less-travelled roads to hell (part 1)


Memorializing our previous failure of getting stuck on Hat Point Road.

The pastoral Wallowa valley




The road to Hells Canyon



Hat Point Road




Just around this turn, the road passed on a very narrow strip of land with a steep fall on either side.

These trees would normally be evergreen, but the area suffered a bad fire in the late 1980s.

Upper Imnaha Road—Part 2, starting with once we left this road, is soon to come.
