The first reference to Hells Canyon appears in an 1895 edition of McCurdy's Marine History of the Pacific Northwest. In discussing the voyage of the steamboat, Norma, the author writes; “she then bound off, swinging into midstream, and like a racehorse, shot into Hells Canyon…” The name stuck.
Straddling Oregon and Idaho, the Hells Canyon Wilderness is split into two distinct parts by the Snake River, which flows through the canyon on its way to the Columbia River. The Hells Canyon Rock Shelter gave up some of the historical secrets of the region including a new point type ... Hells Canyon. This is a beautiful example of the type from the Snake River area in Washington, with one barb being shorter than the other due to ancient resharpening. There is an ancient nick on the base. Edges show heavy use wear and mineral deposits on both faces. The base is thinned and elliptical in cross-section. It has Bennett's COA and I have the shipping.
