The highlights of the Alpengirl 5-day Main Salmon Whitewater Raft trip in Idaho...

  • Warm and sunny weather allowed for daily swimming in warm water with almost all nights sleeping out under the stars next to the river.
  • Talent show on the river won by Jenani and Ann - singing a song from Wicked.
  • Seeing many bald eagles and also seeing big horn sheep with babies from the river.
  • Kate paddled nearly the entire river in a ducky - you go girl!
  • Bocci ball, lots of singing, relay races on the beach.
  • Exploring a few abandonded historical cabins on small side hikes from the river.
  • Pictographs and a hot spring to soak in during raft trip.
  • Lucy's b-day was a happy celebration with a yellow cake with chocolate and strawberries made in a dutch oven - yum!
  • No sunburns, no medical issues at all
  • Girls get along well as a group
  • Almost all skill beads are completed already - there is some fire making tonight as well as shelter building after a hot spring soak in a pool in the middle of the wilderness.
