WHITEWATER RAFTING TRIPS & NEWS
H20 + Wine + Adrenaline = Futa Spine Tingler
It couldn’t happen in a dangerous-sounding rapid like Chaos, Puma, or Condor. It had to happen at Pillow Rock. This innocently named Class IV rapid on the Futa in Chile was actually the most challenging of our first day. The river flows around a huge boulder, with enough of the current pouring over it to form a “pillow” of water on top.
Rafters Rapture: Panama's Chiriqui - Hector Sanchez has the style and good looks of a man who has spent a lifetime outdoors. Held together by a wiry, near six-foot physique he appears every bit the “best river guide in Panama ” as touted by Lonely Planet and other travel guides. Before starting Chiriqui River Rafting in 1994 Sanchez spent two decades as civilian Director of Outdoor Recreation for the U.S. Army South in Panama.
River Music - Dvorak's Classic Rafting Adventures - My wine glass is almost empty. A long, sweet note from the cello signals the end of the first movement. I stand and make my way to the hors d’oeuvre table as warm sand sifts between my toes. This ain’t the Philharmonic. It’s a rafting trip with a soundtrack or a concert with scenery, if you prefer.
Chattooga Deliverance - Proof of Survival -
The water was as blue as I had ever seen. Velvet waves barely crested, gently rising to greet fallen leaves and water skippers that piggy-backed the gentle stretch of the Chattooga River. The sun had just peeked over the highest mountains, laying a warm blanket over us. The water seemed refreshingly deep, surprisingly broad, and softly calling for those standing on the pebble shore to join her in the first rafting trip of the year.
Riding and Rafting the Rockies at Rawah Ranch - There are 37 ranches in the Colorado Dude Ranch Association and each one is unique. High in the northern Colorado Rockies in the Rawah Mountains sits just one of the western jewels. Find out what Rawah means in Ute!
Churning The Kern - There I was, peering down over the edge of a cliff, shivering as the wind raced through my hair. I watched the droplets of river water fall from the tip of my nose 30 feet to the rumbling whitewater below. This was why I had come; to finally put my seemingly endless slumber of everyday apathy to rest.
Gourmet Gorging On The Bruneau Hang on tight! Your breath is about to be sucked right out of your lungs - and that's just from the scenery.
