What In The What Is Hell Hike And Raft?
I shared a couple posts a few days ago on my Mountain Matron Facebook and Twitter pages announcing my introduction to the Hell Hike and Raft team and it suddenly occurred to me that I hadn’t made a proper announcement to you about this brand new awaiting adventure. D’oh!
Let me tell you about a recent and quite possibly the most jaw-dropping email I have yet to receive.
A couple of weeks ago Americas Rafting Company and Adam with Hiking the Trail emailed an invite asking me to join an unbelievable and until now nonexistent bucket list addendum in the great state of Idaho.
The trip begins in September 2014 with a team of 14 adventurers including me from across the United States coming together for the Seven Devils Hiking Trip. The Seven Devils Mountain range of the Hells Canyon Wilderness tenders the Idaho-Oregon border for approximately 40 miles between the Idaho towns of Whitebird and Council.
I quickly jumped at this epic invite to embark on an insane trek through the backcountry to the deepest gorge of North America and then raft my way out of the ten-mile wide, Hells Canyon. Americas Rafting Company added to a team of addicted adventurers can only create a colossal expedition of a lifetime. No discussion needed. Mission accepted!
Follow along over the next few months as I employ to prepare my body, my budget and my gear for this absolute adventure of my lifetime. The #HellHikeAndRaft tag on any social media platform will keep you informed with up to the minute posts from the entire team. I truly can’t wait to join this group of undoubtedly inspiring individuals and as always I will share everything as I go.
