Q & A

  • What would you have changed?

    I would have stayed an extra day. It is too beautiful not to.

  • Anything go wrong during the trip?

    Our jet boil almost didn't start...luckily we figured it out but if it hadn't, we would have been dinner-less.

  • What tips would you give a friend?

    Don't overpack! You really feel the weight of your pack going uphill on your way out.

  • Packing tips?

    Don't forget a head lamp, a bathing suit, and toilet paper!

  • Transportation Tips?

    Carpool if you can! It makes the adventure way more fun.

  • Any surprises?

    Lots of DEER! And they are very friendly too! And the river is COLD!
