Idaho's version of the Grand Canyon.
For right-brained people
Like peanut butter and chocolate, the Middle and the Main were meant for each other; two incredible things combined into one to create something even better. You get the Middle Fork of the Salmon with its clear water, pristine wilderness, abundant hotsprings, intimate scenery and incredible fishing PLUS you get the Main Salmon with its beautiful beaches, warm water, fascinating history and relaxing pace. You get 185 miles of everchanging scenery and over 65 named rapids. You get to experience almost an entire watershed - starting within 20 miles from the headwaters and ending within 40 miles of the confluence. You get envious hugs from the departing Middle Fork guests, then "turn the corner" and get respectful handshakes from the newly arriving Main Salmon guests. You get to disconnect from tomorrow and reconnect with now. You get 12 days of life on the river. You get 12 days of life.
"I'd done the Middle Fork before and I was so curious and felt so deprived when we got to take-out and stopped with all this glorious, unmet river and canyon beckoning to us. I knew I had to come back. I am so glad I did - I feel complete now."
