This was one of my favorite spots along the river, as there as a couple really nice beaches to hang out and the pools were mesmerizing to me with their deep green color. It was a great spot to catch the fishermen who would pause here to work the pools as they floated down river.
A little bit of history connected with the Blackfoot River is that this area was traveled by Meriwether Lewis "of Lewis & Clark", with his party in 1806 as they headed back home. They camped along the river as they headed north and encountered a dangerous meeting with the Blackfoot Indians before eventually turning east to head towards the Missouri River.
This is also the river that the movie "A River Runs Through It" was written about. It was actually not filmed along the Blackfoot in the movie but this is the river that the story was based on.
