Floating Down The Flathead


Yesterday Kish and I took a raft trip down the middle fork of the Flathead River, courtesy of the nice folks at the Great Northern Raft Company.  It wasn’t a whitewater excursion, but rather a gentle float down the river, which forms the western boundary of Glacier National Park.


It was a beautiful day, and our guide steered us through Box Canyon (the beginning of which is shown above) and the Devil’s Elbow.  The sky was clear, the air was cool, and the water — which is almost entirely the product of snow melt — was ice cold and astonishingly clear, as the photo below shows.


The Flathead is designated a wild and scenic river, which means no dams and no meddling by man.  It’s teeming with fish, and fly fishermen, too.  A leisurely float down the Flathead is a very nice break from the rigors of hiking.

    by no means discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours.

    a lot more helpful than ever before. http://Www.Yahoo.net/
