Guides Explain: Scouting a Rapid

There are moments in a trip where a guide gets tense and quiet as they come around a bend in the river. You see the signal to pull over being passed down from boat to boat and, one by one, each guide directs their raft into an eddy on the side of the river. They hop off, go tie up the boat, and come back to announce:

"We're going to scout a rapid."

#WeeklyEscape: 24 Hours In... Stanley, Idaho

Idaho is full of adventure for the outdoor enthusiast. Stanley, located just two and a half hours northeast of Boise, is a hub for hiking, biking, horseback riding, rafting and more.
