August 17-22, 2007 Middle Fork / Lower Salmon Trip

Due to closures on the Middle Fork, this weeks trip was moved to the Lower Salmon where we joined forces with our friends from Hughes River Expeditions. IRJ's eight customers and two guides, Tom and Will, joined Hughes guides Ryan, Bob, and Joel, as well as their customers for an expedition down the Lower Salmon. Crystal clear skies, spectacular "big volume" whitewater, and stunning scenery made the trip an excellent one.

Day 1: Woodruff Gulch
Day 2: No-name camp upstream from Packers Creek
Day 3: Maloney Creek
Day 4: Skeleton Creek
Day 5: Geneva Bar
