Middle Fork of the Salmon River

We asked each of our producers to choose a favorite Idaho Getaway and bring it to us, wrapped up in a ten minute package. Together, the five segments comprise an OUTDOOR IDAHO Special that highlights some of the State’s remarkable travel treasures.

Bruce Reichert and friends find solitude on the Middle Fork of the Salmon River by scheduling a September float trip.

John Crancer swings into the saddle on a 102 year old guest ranch in eastern Idaho, to help herd cattle.

Joan Cartan-Hansen, along with her son and daughter, seek a more urban habitat, exploring resort opportunities in the Coeur d’Alene area.

Jim Peck crosses the Bitterroot Mountains, in the footsteps of Lewis and Clark and the Corps of Discovery.

And Marcia Franklin finds timeless outdoor adventures in the Sawtooth Valley.

Along the way, each of them finds ways to break free from the ordinary, in a state that’s known for its adventurous spirit.
