Into the Canyon (10/24/2001) About three miles south of North Fork, the Salmon River drops into a gorge. The sun picks up the color of the fall folliage.
Rivers lend themselves to photography. In the desert, the rich green riparian zones of the rivers provide a stark contrast to the barren landscape. Rivers are a favorite haunt for local wildlife and the reflexive surface of the water provides interesting colors and light for the photographer.
