Honeymooning In Idaho Wilderness

Isaac Babcock is as at home in the Frank Church-River of No Return Wilderness as the wolves he has monitored and collared for 13 years as a biologist for the Nez Perce Tribe. So it wasn’t a surprise for his new wife, Bjornen, when he revealed his dream honeymoon: Spending a year together in the largest wilderness area in the lower 48 states. The couple had met on a beach in Mexico and fell in love. Bjornen eventually left her native Delaware to join Isaac in Idaho. The wilderness was not foreign to Bjornen. She had worked as a fire lookout and volunteered for the tribe’s wolf-monitoring program. Their story has been captured as a documentary for PBS Nature. “River of No Return” allows us to follow the couple’s uniquely Idaho quest/Rocky Barker, Idaho Statesman. More here.
