The Frank Church-River of No Return Wilderness Area,
2.5 Million Acres of Fabled Mountains & River

In October 2013 a small team of us boarded two bush planes and flew up the Middle Fork of the Salmon River, to the heart of "The Frank". With us was our hero: the legendary ex-Middle Fork game warden and cast iron chef, Butch Welch ("Cee Dubs'). Together we packed into camp on a string of horses and mules, we build fires of mountain mahogany, spoke of the Sheepeaters Whitie Cox, we sipped the Easy Jesus, and fast did we become friends.

Special Thanks to Butch & Miss Penny, Dano Hendrickson, Andy Patrick, Idaho Fish & Game, Ron and Karla Ens at Middle Fork Outfitters, and Scott Farr.
