Experiencing Interruptions?

Banking on Bailey

Banks, Idaho is home to 17 hearty residents; including Ryan Bailey, a white-water kayaker, former wildland firefighter, and the unofficial Mayor of the town. Situated at the confluence of the North and South Fork of the Payette river, Banks means something if you’re a kayaker - the same way that the North Shore of Hawaii means something to surfers, or Yosemite means something to climbers. Growing up the river terrified Ryan, but it kept calling him. Twenty-one years after his first competition in Banks he continues to live his life unapologetically as he’s not concerned about “what’s next”, but rather “what’s right now”.
