We are a state rich in rivers. And the waters that feed those rivers -- Idaho's headwaters -- are truly some of the West's sacred places.
In this hour-long program, we pay tribute to the hundreds of miles of small streams that transport water from the upper reaches of the watershed to the main part of a river. Headwaters help determine the character of major rivers, like the Snake, the Salmon, the Selway, the Boise, the Owyhee, the St. Joe; and in turn those rivers help define Idaho and the West.
Located in some of the state's most beautiful, hard-to-reach places, "Idaho Headwaters" reminds us what it is that's worth protecting in this world of ours.
