River Currents Blog

River Currents is a blog open to many voices that have had a connection with the river and our trips. We want to share with you all the various things that go into making a whitewater or bike adventure so richly fulfilling; the science, the folklore, the policies & the poetry of wildness.

You’ll hear from our regular wilderness-nerd bloggers, Easton Smith, Kate Savage & Lauren Wood. You’ll also hear the the voice of guides whose lives have been shaped by their time on the river, guests who bring the perspectives that remind us why we’re still making these trips happen 50 plus years later.
