Beyond the White Clouds

It’s some of the most dazzlingly diverse country in the West, deserving of the gold standard of protection. In this hour-long Special, the Outdoor Idaho crew visits the three new wilderness areas in the center of Idaho – the White Clouds, the Hemingway-Boulders, and the Jim McClure-Jerry Peak Wilderness – to tell the fascinating 50-year story of how the threat of an open-pit molybdenum mine eventually led to a unanimous vote for Wilderness in Congress. This program also examines some of the major battles yet to be decided.
