Outdoor Idaho

Beyond the White Clouds

Passport Season 34 Episode 3 | 56m 49s

We visit the three new wilderness areas in central Idaho -- the White Clouds, the Hemingway-Boulders, and the Jim McClure-Jerry Peak wilderness -- to tell the 50 year story of how the threat of an open pit molybdenum mine eventually led to a unanimous vote for Wilderness in Congress. And we examine some of the major battles yet to be decided.
