Down the Middle II

Michelle in command

This August I was fortunate to run the Middle Fork of the Salmon River (Idaho) for the second time is as many years. The permit to run this river during season is run by a lottery and to say the least, not common to pull. So when you or someone you know pulls one, its wise to make it happen, ha ha.

This year we had a solid crew made up mostly of Teton Valley, Idaho locals with a few others mixed in. At first I thought a group of 16 was going to be way too big for this river, and in most cases it would be, but this crew worked super well together and it was great! We were on for 6 days and five nights with a night of camping at the put in tacked onto the beginning of the trip.

Last year I wrote a detailed blog of our trip…. unfortunately this time since it has taken me so long to get it on my site I will just let the photos and video speak for them selves ;-)

Enjoy – Mikey
