Took the calmer raft ride down the Snake River. Guide was awesome and very friendly. The views are magnificent. Bald Eagles in their habitat. I’d do it again despite getting rained on.

If you're both in good shape, do the 8 mile whitewater small boat paddle with Barker Ewing. Also, see if you can request Will as your guide. He will make it a truly memorable trip.
