Think i will do main after permit season and do a lower some time in Aug.
I love winter but i cant wait for floating season.
Yes the Main has a pretty cool hotspring. And the shuttle is awfully $$$. We only do the Lower when we can't get a MFS or Main in the summer, which has been a LONG time.
For reference, there is no "Lower Main", except some people call the Riggins-Hammer section that. From Hammer down, it is the "Lower Salmon".
