Gates of the Mountain Boat tour

Last week Paul and I went on the boat tour at Gates of the Mountain. I first heard about it last year and was very excited to do it, but over the last year things have just not allowed us the time to do this. Paul has been super busy, I’ve been super busy, when we do have time, we don’t feel like it, or it slips my mind. 
But we got around to it last week, and it was so cool!

The canyon is made up of primarily limestone.  
It has been filled about 16ft above it’s natural water line due to Hauser Dam.

    Your pictures are stunning! What an amazing view! I am curious about the cave drawings. Can you get closer to them or are they protected?

    Oh, how I miss the mountains!

  3. This is why I love going to boat tours. The serenity and beauty of the mountains is really relaxing. It is really beautiful and through boat tours like this, you will appreciate the beauty of our world. It is amazing especially when you see animals like dolphins argyll in their natural habitat.
