Hurray!!!! 80 miles done on the salmon river in 5 days! The girls thrived, pushed hard through rapids, soaked in hot springs, saw many historical sites and got their adrenaline pumping. Over the last five days we hit tons of rapids ranging from class 2 to class 4. The campsites were beautiful, we camped on beaches under the stars where we would see no less than 10 shooting stars every night. We made lots of Dutch oven meals such as lasagna and enchiladas. Some girls even got to try steering the boat! Today was our last day on the river, despite being sad to leave, the girls are looking forward to showers tonight and pizza, ice cream and awards tomorrow night. It has been a fanstic trip with a wonderful group of Alpengirls!
