We had a big group this week split between a Mucha Agua trip and a Torrents trip. There was a group of friends from Colorado and Vermont, and then the rest of the 2 groups was made up of people from Arizona, North Carolina, Georgia, Kentucky, and Virginia. So all and all we had a very geographically diverse group. 1/2 the group added on a 3 day extension to the end of their trip and headed out to the beach for a little kayaking surfing.
Day 1: the groups arrived from Quito eager to hit the river. We had a massive kayak-outfitting session where we got all 15 kayakers into good boats (good thing we have such a large selection of kayaks)! Then we had a quick lunch and hit the rivers. The Mucha Agua trip headed to the Lower Cosanga while the Torrents trip hit the Quijos.
I am still waiting on photos from the Torrents trip and a few more from the Mucha Agua trip, but for now, here is a sampling of the week (mainly from the Mucha Agua trip). Above, Justin is doing a little advertising for us on the Oyacachi River. Thanks for aiming your kayak perfectly at the camera!
Josh Mack is enjoying his break from a snow-laden Colorado while he cruises down the Oyacachi.
