Summer fun on the Merced River.

Welcoming Summer on the Merced

Our Merced River rafters were in for a real treat on this last weekend of spring. Lots of water in the river and bluebird skies with sunshine abound. Thanks to the slow melting snow in the Sierras, we’ll be able to raft on our favorite free-flowing rivers like the Merced well into the summer this year!
