Idaho White Water Rafting Where Smartphones Cannot Reach YouFrommer's February, 2017
"Not many places in the U.S.A., much less the world, offer an epic outdoor adventure that doubles as a digital detox quite like the Middle Fork of the Salmon River.

"Imagine paddling off the coast of an island in the Pacific Ocean. To your right is a long, sandy beach with a bare volcano rising behind it. To your left lies endless ocean dotted with more small islands. A light breeze blows across the water. A sea turtle pops its head up next to your boat for a breath.
