Week of Rivers with Anna and Andrew Photos

Week of Rivers with Anna and Andrew Photos

Our first trip of the year was a class III – IV co-ed kayaking trip here in Mexico! We were psyched to have a great group: Cynthia and Curtis from Vancouver, BC, Eric and Mark from Brooklyn, NY and Tim from Wisconsin.

Here are some of the photos from the trip. Thanks to everyone who joined us. Enjoy!
