This group was game to sample as much as they could of the areas where we travel , both on and off the river.
Borja to Sala Onda, Bom Bon to Salado, Sardinas to Oyacachi, Manduyacu to Santo Domingo, La Sarena to Puerto Napo, Cotundo to Archidona and Linares to Oyacachi. Rios Quijos, Jondachi, Hollin, Misahualli and Jatunyacu. Seven days of paddling, 4 different rivers and 6 different stretches.
That was just the kayaking. Throw in a visit to Cascada San Rafael, the cascada on the Rio Malo, a chance to catch up with Pepe at his new butterfly facility along the Rio Napo (don’t knock it until you’ve tried it), an attempt to see the last night of festivities in Tena, and a late night stroll through old town Quito.
Steve F. of CA. was back for what must be his 10th trip with us in Ecuador, Idahoan Doug N. has been here numerous times, both as a guest and paddling on his own with friends. Kristie M., with whom we have had the pleasure of paddling with on the Grand and the Middle Fork, took time out from triathlons and tele skiing in her home state of Montana to come down, as did Chris E. of D.C. who was just with us on the Rogue last fall.
