Brownlee Reservoir

This photo looks across the cove where Fox Creek enters Brownlee Reservoir on the Snake River. This general area is known as the Snake River Breaks. The reservoir is about 50 miles long and half a mile wide. The water level fluctuates, depending on power generation and flood control requirements. Recreational enthusiasts and local cities advocate to keep the reservoir as full as possible. To us, it’s a wonderful visual outlook, with many moods, textures, and colors.
