Rafting the Salmon and Learning

When I lived in Colorado way back when (and worked one summer as a junior rafting guide) the Salmon River in Idaho
was considered one of those great rafting trips you simply HAD to do. There are lots of outfitters out there that offer
trips, but

this one by Road Scholar
has a particular allure for me because the company does a nice job focussing on the
natural history of an area. Rather than getting some clueless, pot-smoking guide, their guides tend to be pretty
knowledgable. This trip down the Salmon offers the opportunity to discuss wolf and grizzly re-introduction, fisheries
management, and conservation ethics with naturalists.

A nice to way mix adventure with learning.
