Don enjoying a little scenery on the Upper Jondachi. Even though Don and the whitewater look crappy in this photo, I had to include it because the fern wall in the background looks so amazing. The Jondachi truly is a beautiful river. People always focus on how kick ass the whitewater is (which it is), but the jungle is darn purdy there too.
Ok, this one is really unparalleled anywhere in the world, in any universe–hands down, no arguing! 1 oil engineer, one chemical engineer, 1 life-long dirt bag kayak guide, and 1 18-year-old Ecuadorian aspiring kayak guide all riding on a gigantic mobile caterpillar with kayaks, in full kayaking gear, down the streets of Ecuador. Now tell me, it just doesn’t get any better than this, does it? (well, ok, maybe it gets better–they could have served beer on the bug–but it certainly doesn’t get anymore unique)
