We enjoyed a scenic float down the snake river with our guide Matt. We were able to see quite a few eagles as well as great scenery.

Our rowdy (but sophisticated) bachelor party went rafting with Adam Hausler and had a great time. Highly recommend these guys and rafting the Snake River.

We just returned from an awesome family vacation in and around Wyoming. We opted against the white water ride and instead chose the scenic ride, so as to avoid getting wet. And, in the end, our son dunked his head in and our daughter and...More
