Young Liam super stoked about kayaking in Ecuador
The 2 weeks leading up to Christmas we mostly had medium water (ending with high water) and caught great levels on the Quijos, Cosanga, Oyacachi, Upper Misahualli, Upper Tena and Upper Anzu. Here are a few photos and updates from those last 2 weeks, so enjoy!

Then, the trip left just in time! We got in a great run on the Upper Cosanga on Saturday morning with rapidly raising water. By lunch time on Saturday, the river was HUGE! Luckily, the gang’s week of paddling had come to a close and they were ready to head back to Quito and on to their next adventure–which all of them had next adventures–lucky! Shannan was off on a solo motor bike tour of Ecuador, Stuart was off to Europe to go snowboarding, Liam was off to the Galapagos, Kiran to Villcamamba and Destin was heading home to Wyoming–but in Wyoming, life is always an adventure!
Since all the guests were setting off on cool trips, the guides decided to have a little fun for themselves on Saturday afternoon. With Larry leading the charge, we headed up the Rio Borja and then into the Quijos to enjoy the rivers which were, by this time, totally bank full and offered up some big water awesome-ness for us.
