I grew up in Wyoming, but until this past July 4th, I had never floated down the Shoshone River. I don’t really know why since there are a number of commercial river runners in the area I could have went with. I guess I just never thought about it. So, when the opportunity came up to take a private trip with family I jumped on it and was surprised at how amazing it was. There were a few minor rapids, but mostly it was a relaxing scenic outing. We saw no one once on the river, but saw plenty of birds and deer. I had no idea what I was missing.
