"I think we're taking this whole salmon metaphor way too far..."
Luke Nelson and Ty Draney complete an epic journey.
As you may recall, on September 30th, endurance athletes Luke Nelson and Ty Draney set off along the Middle Fork of the Salmon River into the Frank Church / River of No Return Wilderness in central Idaho. Their mission: cover over 120 miles of rugged terrain - with an elevation gain approaching 20,000 feet - in less than two days, all to raise funds and awareness for SOS' campaign to restore Columbia-Snake River salmon.
In a nutshell, they made it. What was thought to be 120 miles turned out to be closer to 140. But it sounds and looks like it was quite an adventure (and we'll let them tell it). Check out Ty's awesome recount over on Patagonia's Cleanest Line blog.
