In 1824 fur trappers under Alexander Ross of the  Hudson's Bay Company discovered Stanley Basin.  The scarcity of beaver caused other trappers to avoid the area until 1831, when William Farris marched up the Salmon River and camped in the Basin for ten days.  He clubbed salmon in the streams for food, but found the same streams more bereft of beaver that when Ross' party waded through.  The Ferris brigade left the area with the remark that their "visit to this now interesting country was a complete failure..."

Kodi, Perry, Mike, and Kris when to Beaver Creek area for a camping trip in August.

We had a wonderful time camping above the Beaver Creek camp ground along Beaver Creek. We spent nine days riding four wheelers, eating wonderful food as usual, and trying our luck at fly fishing.  Our little Alex, even at age fifteen, still enjoyed the four wheeler trips with Emmy.
