In nature and in life everything has a series of stages it takes on its journey. The life of some rivers begins high in the mountains where alpine lakes fed from snow melt, meander down to create the headwaters to some of Americas largest rivers. It's this cycle of life for lakes and rivers I hope to showcase on this one of a kind SUP adventure.
On August 2nd Jackson Berger and I along with Garmin videographer Jake Martin and photographer Josh Aldrige will set off on a journey to the jagged lake filled mountains in the Sawtooth Wilderness in Idaho. We'll flyfish and hike SUPs 60 miles into and throughout this amazing area, this will be a first for SUP and will showcase one of the most beautiful wildernesses and rivers in the country. We will then hike out of the mountains to the salmon river and paddle 20 miles back to where we started to complete the trip.
This wilderness along with its connecting wild lands are crucial for the nation. As our nations population grows these areas shrink, so we must protect them with everything we have. With this expedition I hope to show you the magic of adventure, friendship, life of a river but most importantly the cycle. So I'm excited to present the new logo for the trip by Jackson Berger and welcome you to Gray Outdoors next Fight to SOAR expedition "The Cycle" presented by Garmin sponsored by Boardworks SUP, Orvis and GoalZero.
