Get an in-depth look at our three newest wilderness areas from ‘Outdoor Idaho’

Most Idahoans will never explore the three new wilderness areas created by Congress last year — despite their location right in the heart of our state. They’re just too remote. So the crew of “Outdoor Idaho” set out to show people what’s in the White Clouds, Hemingway-Boulders and Jim McClure-Jerry Peak Wilderness areas — and why Congressman Mike Simpson fought so hard to protect them — for a one-hour show that airs at 7 p.m. Sunday on Idaho Public Television. The title is “Beyond the White Clouds.” It won’t re-air in the next few weeks, so be sure to set your DVR if you want to see it.
