Nature: River of No Return

Wed, 04/11/2012 - 4:12pm -- WCVE

Deep in the heart of Idaho lies the Frank Church-River of No Return Wilderness, part of the largest roadless area left in the lower 48 states. At 2.5 million acres, it is larger than Yellowstone, yet most people have never even heard of it. Designated a federally-protected wilderness in 1980 by Congress, the region is full of deep canyons and mountain forests, rivers and abundant wildlife. Otters and elk, deer and coyotes, blue birds and bighorn sheep, and newly-restored wolf populations all thrive there.

Since children start learning their basic shapes and colors around the age of two, it is a great opportunity for parents and children to explore shapes and architecture together.
