There is a majesty to this place that belies the name, a serenity that mocks the furor over its future that is brewing on the ranches and Indian reservations and in the towns on the other side of the ridges. Ponderosa pines and mountain cedars sway in the breezes that cut across the rugged landscape. A tiny creek bed, often dry, meanders through the grasses and rocks on the canyon floor. At night, the cries of coyotes resonate around the cliffs, and twinkling stars crowd the sky.

For instance there is Hells Canyon, the steep, grandiose rock gorge cut by the Snake River through the Wallowa and Seven Devils mountain ranges, delineating the border of Idaho and northern Oregon. It is America's deepest canyon, more than 8,000 feet from its highest pine-and-peak edges down to the cactus-and-brush river bottom below.
