I just watched a moving and inspirational show on KRMA, part of their Nature series. Here is the description:
“Central Idaho’s Frank Church – River of No Return Wilderness is the largest contiguous wilderness area in the lower 48 States. Endless rugged mountains, wild rivers, forests, and deep canyons define this land – a home to numerous species of wildlife including wolves, who have just returned after 50 years of near absence – and a young couple, Isaac and Bjornen Babcock, who chose this wilderness for their year-long honeymoon. But what begins as a romantic adventure becomes something much greater for the couple – and a tale of hope and celebration for every life trying to make it in the unforgiving heart of the wilderness.”
It is showing again on April 22 at 6PM. It made me wish I was 25 again (which rarely happens).
If you’ve never fished the Middle Fork of the Salmon in this wilderness, it should be on your list.
