Horse Canyon

A narrow gorge, with massive rock formations that rise to form the opposite canyon walls, while the river foams and dashes in its rough bed several hundred feet below. Impressive views present themselves from time to time as the highway winds past natural vantage points.

The east end transitions from the narrow gorge as the highway swings away from the river and cuts through a wide valley given over to farming. Trees along the east end of the gorge lean heavily eastward, indicating the force and frequency of the west winds which roar through the gorge.
