The Grande Ronde river starts high in the mountains west of La Grande. It is a major tributary of the Snake River. The sixty or so miles we floated passes through deep forests and basalt layered canyons. The symphony of the river soothes mind and soul, and the rapids and rocks keep the body alert. We are blessed to have this river in our "backyard." The put in is only forty five minutes from La Grande.
