AO Africa slideshow at California River Festival March 15Posted March 1, 2008 by Malina
Friends of the River’s annual California River Festival just got even better. AO owner Scott Armstrong has been invited to present a slideshow and talk on his 2005 expedition to Ethiopia’s Blue Nile. Scott helped lead the expedition’s international team from the source of the Nile to the Sudanese boarder. There were nights in bat caves, dinners of power bars and tuna, snapping crocs, remote villages, thundering whitewater in rock-walled canyons, and lots of high adventure.
As you can imagine the expedition provided many opportunities for whipping out the camera, and I can personally attest to the beauty (and sometimes humor) of Scott’s photography. We’ve all sat through excrutiating travel pics, trapped in the monotony of one boring snapshot after another–in fact let’s face it we’ve all probably been the person droning on and on–but I am here to tell you that this is one slide show you will really enjoy. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll be really grateful for the infrastructure in the United States.
