Listen to the River: A Packraft Adventure

Cool video today from up on the Bob. This gang really has some balls, and legs. Makes us here on the Mo look lazy. Towing boats behind SUV’s!

Wild Confluence Films brings us this pleasant video on this snowy and cold Friday in central Montana. Enjoy.

6 friends set out into Montana’s legendary Bob Marshall wilderness to float and fly fish the pristine South Fork Flathead River. Two days of hiking takes the crew 25 miles up the banks of this roadless river. On the 3rd day the team inflates their pack rafts and begins the float on this wild river. The fishing does not disappoint, and the Wild Confluence crew dines on cutthroat trout each night. The 4 day float back to the trailhead is cut short on the final night when the team learns that the nearby wildfires have begun to rage toward them (several photos capture the smokey sky and orange glow of the fire). The out of control fire burns four miles away, nearly destroying their cars in the parking lot but luckily doesn’t incinerate them! The team is forced to evacuate – hiking thirty miles in a day over a seldom traveled 8000 foot pass to escape the wildfire.
