The Next Generation

As the West becomes more urbanized Outdoor Idaho offers some tips on bringing nature and adventure into a child's life. Two authors-- a backpacker and a 4x4 enthusiast-- give parents some practical advice. We meet eight year old Camber Peck, afflicted with cerebral palsy, who nevertheless bikes, skis and scuba dives. And a veteran outfitter gives one vacationing family the time of their lives on a wild ride down Idaho's South Fork of the Payette River.
