Video: In Love With Frank

A team of Idaho river guides do some soul searching as they explore rivers within the Frank Church Wilderness

Idaho’s Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness is the largest wilderness area in the lower 48 states. Rafters, kayakers, and canoeists flock to the area’s Salmon River each spring, but there’s more to the Frank than the famed Middle Fork of the Salmon.

“This was a passion project. A love story with a wild place that has impacted my life deeply. For nine guide seasons I’ve worked Idaho’s Middle Fork of the Salmon River, the emerald queen of multiday river trips. She cuts through a 2.5 million acre span of wild, roadless beauty called The Frank Church Wilderness. It is a rugged and raw country. For years I’ve floated by the Middle Fork’s many tributaries and wondered what kind of scenery is upstream. I’ve also thought about the springtime whitewater. This video is an exploration of Rapid River, Loon Creek and Camas Creek with three good friends. They discuss how this area has helped shape their life and how it will continue to.”— Seth Dahl
