Idaho is home to some pretty spectacular landscapes. But, did you know it is also home to the deepest river gorge in North America? Hells Canyon is one of the most incredible natural features in the Gem State and also one of the most underrated. This National Recreation Area sits along the Oregon and Idaho state line and offers more than 652,000 acres of wilderness. It’s one place that is truly breathtaking.
