Viewing the Solar Eclipse on the Middle Fork of the Salmon River

August 11, 2017 by Dr Howard Backer & Heather Howard

On August 21 we'll be four days and 70 miles along the Middle Fork of the Salmon River—right in the path of the 2017 solar eclipse, which will sweep across Idaho many other U.S. states! At around 11:30am (MDT) we'll don our eclipse glasses and watch as the landscape darkens eerily and then celebrate with solar eclipse-themed treats and a fun day on the river. For safe viewing of the eclipse we asked our chief medical consultant Dr. Howard Backer for some advice.

Why We Love the Middle Fork of the Salmon River

May 11, 2017 by MTS Team

The Middle Fork of the Salmon River isn't just a trip. It's something deeper: a journey of no return that makes us bolder and braver. This collection of staff testimonials captures a few personal perspectives that demonstrate why we love the Middle Fork—and often recommend it as a first-time adventure with Mountain Travel Sobek. Interestingly, many who ride the Middle Fork once return with family, friends, and in many cases the next generation of adventure travelers. See you on the river!
