River Description

See also Idaho: the Whitewater State by Amaral.

Grant advises: "For a movie, see Marilyn Monroe in 'River of No Return.'" I don't know about you, but I'm heading for the library to see if it's in their archives.

This roadless river is amazing. Eagles and otter roam and are protected. Thank you Idaho.
