Apr. 24, 2012 at 9:03pmNature: River of No Return

Watch it at your leisure!

A program that’s already aired this week really peaked my interest as I read about it on this week’s schedule.

It’s a regional story about Central Idaho’s Frank Church-River of No Return Wilderness which was heretofore unknown to me.

I don’t get out enough, it’s true.

 

What really has me curious about the story, aside from the fact that this is the largest contiguous wilderness area in the lower 48 states, a fact I was unaware of, is that central to the story is a young couple named Isaac and Bjornen Babcock, who chose this place for their year-long honeymoon!

Well… not only do they choose a wilderness for their honeymoon, but who gets to spend a year honeymooning after the wedding nuptials?

Here’s what the description says: “what begins as a romantic adventure becomes something much greater for the couple - and a tale of hope and celebration for every life trying to make it in the unforgiving heart of the wilderness.”

Yeah I bet.

Not only that but it also alludes to the fact that in these “endless rugged mountains, wild rivers, forests, and deep canyons define this land - a home to numerous species of wildlife including wolves, who have just returned after 50 years of near absence.” A mystery solved perhaps.

Anyway I’m going to watch the full episode tomorrow after I catch up on sleep and homework. More and more there are entire episodes online that you can watch at your leisure. Here’s the link to Nature: River of No Return. 

Check out the KPSP Public TV website to look for other programs that are available to watch in their entirety!
