Announcing ECHO's 35th River Season
In a few weeks, ECHO begins its 35th year of running rivers. Like a river, ECHO is ever the same and ever changing. The same owners walk through the office front door every day, the same way the Middle Fork of the Salmon, the Rogue River, and the Tuolumne keep on flowing.
Yet, we know both man and river are ever changing, and there in lies the excitement and magic. We are excited by the young-bloods who surround ECHO these days, and they, in turn, are excited by rivers that offer up different water levels, new rapids, and new challenges.
We have seen a lot in 35 years--forest fires, floods, droughts, and even a volcano erupting. Our trips have been influenced by human events too--the gas embargo of the '70's, inflation and deflation in the '70's and '80's, the Falkland war, the Gulf war, 9/11, the Afghan war, and the Iraqi war. But somehow we keep rolling along.
We are beginning a special season, and we look forward to spending some river time with you. It has been a great ride, and it is going to be a great ride.
