HELP!!! Need info on MFS class of '97

Between the dates of 26-28 Sept, 1997 I canoed the Middle Fork of Salmon with my dad in a Coleman ram x-15 canoe. Just the two of us, low water, no support boats, 3 days of bliss!!! Trouble is, all we have to remember this by is the canoe that we wrapped around the rock in the middle of waterfall rapid!!! There was a kayaker who caught us about 8 miles from the confluence with the Main. We were fixing the hull with a bit of duct tape. That picture is priceless, not even sure if it still exists!!! But, if it does, could someone spread the word if you know anyone who may have taken that picture. It would be so appreciated. Dads 70 now and I'm pretty sure he won't be doing another canoe trip down the MFS!!! Thank you everyone! I've got red hair, dad had blackish grey. Canoe was green. I know it is a small chance of this working, but I have to try!!!!!

Don't know about the picture but considering telling the story together with your dad on video, someday that would be priceless to you and younger ones.

Try posting on the idahowhitewater Yahoo group if you haven't already. Kind of slow there these days, but has been very active in the past.

We met a couple hikers on our Nov 2015 GC trip - they video'd us going through Hermit and I'd love to have a copy. We had no kayakers this time, so no video except on-board GoPro's.

Good luck!
