MeetingPaddling enthusiast Tom Chelstrom will take us down the Boise River. The River is far more than just a tubing trip from Barber to Ann Morrison Park, or a play wave and pending whitewater park; it can be explored all the way to its confluence with the Snake in small craft (canoes, inflatable kayaks, river kayaks, pack rafts) with adventurous paddlers willing to make a few portages.
Overnight TripThis is a self-supported 4 days, 3-night car camping/over-landing trip. We will meet in Jordan Valley and caravan to the camp area at Anderson Crossing. We will camp at the same location for 3 nights.
