Blackfoot River Idaho Vid...

The Blackfoot River in Eastern Idaho is simply the shit for late season paddling, akak September. The water feels as if it is top released out of the Reservoir which adds to the awsomeness of the run. I meet up with the Jackson boys "Snug", Johnny, and Sam who already had quite the adventure; one speeding ticket, one blown tire, and they got lost on the way to the put in. We ran shuttle and pushed off down Wolverine Canyon at 4 oclock. It was a sick run regardless of the two rattlesnakes I almost stepped on and the poison ivy you gotta walk through on the mandatory portage. Overall this is and should be a late season classic for anybody in the area.

Great vid Mike! What was the level?

Between Black Canyon of the Bear, Blackfoot, and (I've heard there is some fun stuff up on the Upper) Portneuf there is some cool stuff in SE Idaho.

Thanks Matt, I haven't done the Bear or Portneuf yet. It seems like if you include bitch and teton runs aswell, east Idaho isnt a horrible place to live. Level was 500cfs.
