New! Bluegrass with Laurie Lewis and Tom Rozum on the Yampa River
The Yampa is the ultimate setting for a bluegrass river trip. Its sheer canyon walls, grand overhangs, and large sandstone amphitheaters make it a natural concert hall.
Dates: June 17-21, 2012

We've just confirmed that bluegrass legends Laurie Lewis and Tom Rozum will join a second river trip through Utah's unique desert landscape. The Yampa River is the last undammed river in the Colorado River system. Each May and June, the Yampa's Class III-IV rapids churn up excitement among rafters looking for a wild ride. However, it may be the softer side of the Yampa that has them returning: miles of white tiger-striped rock walls drop 2000 feet into the river, Ancestral Puebloan rock art decorates the canyon, gorgeous waterfalls and caves are begging to be explored.
We'll run this trip with the assistance of our friends at ARTA, who you may have joined in the past on the Tuolumne River with Laurie and Tom. This will be Laurie's first trip to the Yampa, so join her for the same sweet bluegrass and camaraderie you have come to expect, but in a totally new environment!
