Salmon River Gorge March 1983 Expedition Potholes Area

This view of the potholes area shows one of the larger bowls, where water streaming into the basin spins boulders at the bottom, gradually deeping the pothole over time. This pothole measures 15 feet across, and nearly 15 feet deep. Doug and Dave from the 1983 expedition stepped over narrow several channels in the river to reach the large boulder at the center of the river.
