THE NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE A CROWD ON THE BRIDGE AT SALMON WATCHES THE START OF "THE WILDEST BOAT RIDE IN AMERICA" Because of unusually low water all the party except the boatmen and cook disembarked below the new highway span and rejoined the scow at Ebenezer Bar, 56 miles farther downstream. The boat carried the scientists who were to investigate some of the most remarkable geologic forma tions in North America. STEELHEAD FISHING WAS GOOD The National Geographic Society waited here at Middle Fork while Shenon, Reed, and Williams made a side trip up the rugged stream. This junction of the Salmon River and its Middle Fork is a favorite center for fishermen and hunters.
