Salmon River Lodges & Legacies - a part of history

"This River of No Return and the Frank Church Wilderness holds treasures - take a journey back in time to when prospectors and homesteaders carved out a living in this remote, rugged, isolated canyon. Where Lewis & Clark turned around - you will continue to go into the deep rocky canyon walls that hold stories of determined individuals that made this place their home."
