Season 19 Episode 3 | 26m 49s

The Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness Area is the crown jewel of the National Wilderness System. The Frank is twice the size of Rhode Island and Connecticut combined. Outdoor Idaho looks at the history of the Frank, learns about the opportunities in "America's wildest classroom" and explores a place, as one hiker described it, that is "about as close to heaven as you can get."
