|Boulders and Water: Running Wild and Scenic Rivers of the West|
Free Slide show. Sunday, October 3, 6:30pm at Boulders Climbing
gym. Refreshments provided, RSVP appreciated: 244-8100.
Synposis: Dan York, lifetime paddler and instructor for
Rutabaga Outdoor Programs, presents photos and shares
experiences of multi-day whitewater trips on the Selway and
Dan York, a lifetime paddling enthusiast, has logged many miles
down some of these river gems. Dan will share photos and
stories of recent runs of the Selway and Salt Rivers, two very
different types of trips on two very different rivers. Come
enjoy some visual treats and learn how you could run a wild
western river���even if you've never dipped a paddle or an oar.
Climbing isn't the only way to experience rocks and wild
places. The American West is filled with spectacular wilderness
rivers running from high mountain snowfields through thick
forests, deep canyons and high deserts. These rivers present
unique opportunities for multi-day trips through some of the
wildest areas in the lower 48 states.
Bio: Dan York
Dan has been messin' about in boats about as long as he can
remember, which spans enough boating history to have made his
first whitewater kayak. While solidly grounded in the Midwest,
Dan's paddling fantasies seem to find him on the wild rivers of
the American West. Dan also greatly enjoys flatwater paddling
with his family closer to home in Madison. Dan has been an
instructor with Rutabaga Outdoor Programs since 2003. His day
job is working for a national non-profit organization devoted
to energy efficiency policy research and advocacy.
