The River of No Return

Payette NF

The Salmon River originates from and flows through the mountains of central and eastern Idaho. The river turns abruptly north at the confluence with the Little Salmon River at Riggins, a few miles west of the location shown here. The river then loops northwest and south to its confluence with the Snake River north of Hells Canyon. Photo © copyright by Robert Faucher.
