Echo river tour locations We all met in Stanley the afternoon of August 23 for orientation - the first of John's "irritating public information messages". The next morning we were flown to Indian Creek, about a half hour trip. We floated the Middle Fork from there to Corn Creek on the Main Salmon, about 80 miles, where we loaded everything into a bus for the three hour bus ride to Salmon. That night, August 29, we all had a final dinner together for last hugs and goodbyes.

Comparing this map to its position in the panels section illustrates that these maps are vertical only to fit them into the booklet. (225 KB)
