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.
