One Utahn drowned in Idaho during the Memorial Day weekend and two other Utahns were rescued after their canoe capsized in Grand Teton National Park.
William Russell Price, 38, Logan, drowned when his raft capsized on the Selway River in northcentral Idaho, near Grangeville. His body was found Saturday night about 15 miles downstream from where his raft capsized earlier that day, deputy sheriffs said.
John Byrne, 23, and Brad Garvin, 28, both of Salt Lake City, were unharmed after a night by the Snake River, after their canoe capsized in Grand Teton National Park. Neither required medical attention and asked only for a hot shower, said Park Service dispatcher Marilynn Heath. Rain fell in the area Sunday night and temperatures were in the 30s, she said.
They were with two other Utahns, Peter Hallberg and David Keting, whose canoe also capsized, Heath said. The canoes became separated early in the journey and the canoeists did not see each other after that, she said.
