Grizzly vs Elk!

Our own National Geographic moment and a fascinating week with this grizzly working it's way through an elk carcass on the river. We've also seen bald and golden eagles along with the predictable turkey vultures and ravens gorging themselves on this spring windfall. Nothing going to waste here! Hope your weekend is as fulfilling for you as it has been for these critters!!

Our Fourth Consecutive Certificate of Excellence!

We have launched into a busy 2018 with a very 2017ish feeling spring. High snowpack and consistently hot weather. 


We once again have been very fortunate to have received so much support from guests who rafted and reviewed our operation from the latter part of 2017 and from those that have already joined us this spring. Those reviews have been generously supplied and have earned us our fourth consecutive Certificate of Excellence through TripAdvisor! 


Our sincere thanks to all of you!! All the very best in your adventures this summer, wherever they lead you!

Oly and Tamara.
