I would check out the adventure company out of Johnson village. A smaller company with a laid back feel. They have very experienced guides and take safety seriously.

Timberline for sure. I think they make everyone do a swimming test for Gore Canyon. You have to swim under the raft or some such thing.

I wouldn't generally pay much heed to anything JD has to say...but this time I, as well as the rocks, agree...
