The Snake River in the center of the picture is located at the confluence of the Snake River and Clearwater Rivers. Lewiston, Idaho is on the left; Clarkston, Washington on the right. Because of dams (and their locks) on the Snake and Columbia River, Lewiston is reachable by some ocean-going vessels. The Port of Lewiston (Idaho's only seaport) has the distinction of being the farthest inland port east of the West Coast. The viewpoint is 1,000 feet (30,480c) higher than the rivers below.

This is quite a stunning view Don, I love how you have captured the hills with their switchback roads and how the light reacts upon them and then the city in the distance which then seems to blend into the sky

I like this image and your narrative, Don. You're looking south here and the change of terrain is fascinating. I had to check to see if this is the same Snake River we saw in Jackson, WY ... and sure enough, it is.

Wonderful perspective. I like the excellent composition with elements such as the valley of hills, the S-shaped river, the big curved road and the misty view in the distance. It's a superb shot.

I like this landscape, especially the interplay of sinuous shapes of the river and the road.

(Tomorrow I have a "gift" for you.)

the Lewiston Hill ain't what it used to be (although I know that you can still go down the old road)

Nice dusty browns and grays. I like the folds in the earth and the general incline of the landscape.
