So if a tree falls in Goodwin Canyon, does it matter if no rafters were there to see it?  Turns out it does!  We were all set for a great little spring season on Goodwin Canyon but as soon as our bags were packed we had to re-rack because there is literally a tree blocking […]

September 12th, 2011 Malina

Just because the kids are back in school–and by kids of course I mean a bunch of our college-kid river guides–doesn’t mean we’ve packed up for the year and thrown away the last tube of sunblock.  Our fair River Office is quieter these days for sure but there are still plenty of options for rafting […]

September 11th, 2006 Robyn Suddeth

We’re pushing envelopes all over the state here folks… from 14000 cfs on the Tuolumne in June to 450 cfs on Goodwin Canyon this last Saturday; come low or high water, we’ll be there.
