Where? The northernmost part of California in the heart of the Klamath National Forest, home of the legendary “Big Foot” also know to many as “Sasquatch”.
California’s Salmon River, comes surging out of the snow capped Trinity Alps and Marble Mountain Wilderness Area. The Cal Salmon River is one of the top ten whitewater challenges of North America today, probably in the top three. The Cal Salmon River features an exciting combination of luminous green pools that are frequently squeezed by craggy formations of glistening marble and granite bedrock, creating long explosive rapids, summersaulting waves and enormous suck holes, intertwined with inconveniently placed boulders in this twisting canyon. Gold mining operations and gold miners, not of yesteryear, but today vigorously pursue the age old riches still hidden here. Many different kinds of wildlife and waterfowl inhabit this remote coniferous covered forestland.
