AO Rafting in the News!

July 11th, 2013 Malina

PAT_4338-1024x685Ok so it’s just our local paper in Placerville, the Mountain Democrat, but it’s still exciting to see AO Rafting owner and guide extraordinaire Scott A in print!  His photo accompanied a lovely article on whitewater rafting back in June (yes, I’m a little behind, oh well).

Here is a little snippet of the article on rafting in El Dorado county, but you can read the whole thing online!

“Whitewater rafting is one of the best scary/fun adventures you can experience. El Dorado County is one of the best places to  hear the roar of rapids up ahead, feel the pounding of your heart as the raft carries you ever closer and the adrenaline rush as you paddle through the rapids, bouncing on the waves, while water cascades around you. The thrill of accomplishment as you shoot safely through the rapids and come out into a stretch of fast-moving water is amazing and it all happens right here, in our own backyard.”

(above: Wooooo!!! That’s the Mountain Demo’s picture of Scott A guiding a paddle boat just above Meatgrinder, on the South Fork American River)
