Magnificent, from the Scenery to the Comradery to the Guides, the Food, the Fun and Adventure. Need I Go On?
Okay, I'll go on. If you want to truly live in the moment and gain a reprieve from all that ails you, this is the trip. Out in the wilderness, you'll commune with nature, form new friendships and enjoy a first class adventure tour. Perhaps the best way to explain the height of joy experienced on the trip is by comparison to the depth of the post river anticlimax. I’ve got a steep climb ahead - still!
From the moment we put into the Middle Fork of the Salmon River and paddled as teams, there was constant excitement. In the evenings, there were sumptuous dinners and contentment. The Milky Way and stars, absent back home, were nighttime companions and reminders that a simpler way of life renews one's soul. The short but vertical hikes to spectacular vistas and waterfalls were invigorating and breathtaking. Our guides instilled confidence and were wonderful hosts. Laughs abounded.
River songs fill my heart.
