The end of the trip

Another exiting guide training season has started on the Wenatchee river in Leavenworth ! More outdoor loving, adventure seeking, adrenaline junkies will go through rigorous ,but the most fun 5 weeks of their life. And at the end, as a reward, they can proudly call themselves - river guides.

The Wenatchee River ranks within the top 10 most popular rivers for whitewater rafting in the entire U.S.! Due to its low hazard , the Wenatchee river can be enjoyed by paddlers of all levels. The river's appeal : plenty of Eastern Washington sunshine, pleasant scenery of the Wenatchee Valley and safe, professional outfitters.

One of them is Rivers Incorporated, a "smaller sized " company providing rafting trips and guide training since 1985.The company's multi-week instructional course presents information on virtually every aspect of raft guiding. During the 5 week course the trainees will learn : reading the river, paddle boating, swimming rapids, boat flipping, river rescue, pinned boat extraction, teamwork and group management. The course exceeds the state of Washington's minimum requirement of 50 on-river training hours.

But just like I wrote in my last year's post, besides of all the training , you will also get one more thing that not any other company can provide- warm and friendly atmosphere created by the company's owner Lynda Myra , who unlike other companies, teaches all the classes herself.
