The Salmon River domninates central Idaho. Its headwaters are in the Sawtooth Mountains. The river flows north through Stanley to Challis, Salmon and North Fork, then veers west into the Salmon Mountains and the Frank Church Wilderness to Riggins, Idaho. The section of River between North Fork and Riggins Idaho is aptly dubbed the River of No Return. Lewis and Clark scouted the upper part of the river, and decided that the grim trek back into Montana was a better route than the wild untamed rapids of the Salmon River.
