Main Salmon Womens River Retreat with Anna Levesque and Cali Womens Collective

“To travel 80 miles on the Main Salmon River, is to experience the vast beauty of Idaho wilderness while embarking on a personal journey of being present apart from everyday life and expectations. Thank you Anna and Canyons for making it happen! I still still feel the awe and wonder of the trip in my bones. ” – Sarah, WI

“I noticed my mind began to stop racing; the distractions faded. I accepted just being THERE, just flowing with the river. I became encircled by this group of interesting, supportive, accepting women who all shared my joy in paddling the river.  The wilderness is mystical, providing perspective and a sense of one’s place in the fabric of life. Words don’t do this trip justice. I am SO glad I went!!” – Dee, VA
