Kaweah River still running strong . . .

June 5th, 2008 Malina

The cycle of cool-hot-cool-hot weather we’ve had in California lately has kept our wetsuits in rotation a little longer than we expected, wool sweaters out in force, and cloudy skies fooling even veteran guides into forgetting their sunscreen.  As long as we’ve been rafting you’d think we’d know that cloud cover is no substitute for […]

Kaweah River Snowpack–Good News for Los Angeles Area Rafters

May 10th, 2008 Malina

Jon Bon Jovi

January 24th, 2006 Robyn Suddeth

We’ve all heard the typical “pump-up” songs at sporting events. A basketball game without Queen’s “We Will Rock You” is just wrong, and what football game could survive without asmall sampling of Guns and Roses’ “Welcome to the Jungle”?
