Rafting on the Salmon River. Triple Creek Ranch.
The trip can be enhanced by having a local historian join the horseback riding, the river rafting, or both. Judy Washbon is known for her entertaining storytelling, which can bring the historic Expedition to life. She can regale the guests with tales of Lewis & Clark, highlighting significant events and lesser-known day-to-day adventures from the monumental journey of discovery. Washbon also enlivens the day by describing the myths and mysteries of the only female member of the historic journey, the young Shoshone native Sacajawea.
