Floating through the middle of nowhere

I have lots of blog post ideas floating through my head, but don’t have the time at the moment to write any of them. But I will provide a little something for you all to look at until I get myself together. John and I were lucky enough to join one of his college friends and his family and friends on a 5-day ‘float’ down the Middle Fork of the Salmon River in Idaho. The Middle Fork is in one of the most pristine wilderness areas in the U.S. and there was blessedly no such thing as a cell phone signal anywhere along the route. Here is a little sampler.

I look bigger than the plane. Waiting in 100 degree heat to take off from Boise.

    Of course the photos are lovely, but what I really want to know is what book did you end up taking? I only ask because you solicted advice on your blog for this very trip and now I am super curious! Or did you *gasp* not take any book at all?

      You have probably noticed by now from my most recent post that the two books I took with me were A Coffin for Dimitrios by Eric Ambler and The Burnt-out Case by Graham Greene.
