"Dear Montana River Guides,
Thank you for making our July 1st family float an experience to remember. With 31 people ranging in age from 6 to 78, you did an amazing job of accommodating every level of excitement and anxiety! The spectacular scenery of the gorge was only enhanced by your expertise and professionalism.
With visitors from Utah, Seattle and Spokane, we were proud to "show off" the beauty and brilliance of rafting in Western Montana. Thank you for making this such a special event."
