^^^ especially dry at this point. most of that route past the bridge (point c on map) should have had enough snow on it to make it unpassable, especially in the shaded areas. this is the first year weve ever camped in february. its jacking up our snowboard season, but extending our camp season. i dont know if im happy or mad about the whole situation. i just hope this lack of moisture isnt a sign that idaho will be on fire again all summer

you are more man than i, but that sounds like a cool adventure. you should let me know when you do this. we can camp along the route someplace and be a stop along the way if you didnt mind. you time it right and you could end up with a 4 course meal out in the middle of nowhere. we have some master camp chefs in our clan and they love putting on competitions to see who likes whos food the best.
and yes, all the springs right along the river banks would be under water at this point. river is at or near its usual spring runoff height...in feb, lol. however there are a few that arent right on the water and they should be accessible, but the "itch" seems to live in the springs that dont have cold water sources and utilize mixing pools. for some reason the red spider mites love chewing on me
