Have a happy Thanksgiving!
Thanks, DirtyJohnny. The family photo on the river sand (page #1, post #1) is on the Main Salmon in Idaho two summers ago. We rafted with ARTA (arta.org) from Salmon, ID (Corn Creek) to McCall, ID (Carey Creek). The River of No Return. It was a spectacular 6-day trip. Lots of class 2 & 3 whitewater. Very fun in inflatable kayaks and paddle rafts.
This past summer we did a similar trip with ARTA on the Rogue River in southwestern Oregon. Beautiful country although not as remote. Great river, perhaps even more family oriented. Here is a pic of the Rogue River.
This next summer we will raft / kayak on the San Juan River in southeastern Utah (Bluff). ARTA doesn't cover the San Juan, so we'll be with a different company. The whitewater will be a bit tamer, but it should still be a great family vacation. We have inflatable kayaks so perhaps we'll do the San Juan River only with friends on a future trip.
Rafting trips -- highly recommended as a family vacation!
