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 zinc oxide or avobenzene…..

Sunburns aside, one result of this funny weather is a stretched out season on the Kaweah River.  Super hot weather could render this update useless in a week, of course, but right now we think we have a good solid two weeks left.  Southern California rafters! Get a carpool together and head north!   Share gas money, get some snacks, and play 21 questions until you get to Three Rivers.  The Kaweah’s class III and IV whitewater have already given us some epic days–big surfs, tube-stands and even a flip or two.  Your group is sure to make some memories of its own . . . The Kaweah is good for that sort of thing.
