My older teen daughter and I floated the Boise River from Barber Park to Ann Morrison Park. There are several sections where the water drops just a bit or moves more quickly. We got splashed once because we purposefully aimed for a rough patch. There are several places where the water is shallow. You do need to pay attention and... More
