“There’s something hard to describe about this huge trench that the Columbia River has dug between the Rockies and the Selkirks. The tow ranges tower, white-headed, above their bench lands and their river reaches, facing each other across a great green gulf, mountains of another world, as aloof and ever-beautiful as ones memories of childhood.”
