This is the Mickey Mouse stretch on the S. Fk. Clearwater in Idaho. This is a great river to explore if you are in the Lochsa area and it's overly crowded. The river was at about 3200 cfs in the picture above, and is usually run at lower levels. Blackerby rapid (pictured) is the standout; about halfway into the run.
If you wish to heat things up a bit, head upstream to the Golden Canyon run. This is a step-up from Mickey Mouse and is some of the best paddling in north-central Idaho.

Mickey Mouse Logistics: Class IV. The put-in is located on Idaho State Highway 14 around mile marker 14 (there is a small campground in the vicinity, or you can just find a pullout). The take-out is anywhere between mile markers 8 and 0. We usually take out around mile marker 8 because the whitewater tapers off below this.
