We just got off the MS this past saturday and all I can say is wow. You folks that are in striking distance to this river (roll in the MFS, payette, etc) are truly blessed.
The combination of water clarity, rapids, camps, scenery, swim-ability and much more - was, in my book - the perfect family trip.
Can't wait for my next trip up there.
