Dear Caltech Alumni & Friends,
We are excited to announce our first Caltech Alumni Association Idaho whitewater adventure! We invite you on an incredible five-day, 72-mile river journey down the famous Salmon River. This is a unique opportunity to travel with a small group of Caltech alumni and Caltech faculty member Brian Wernicke, Chandler Family Professor of Geology, on an exclusive wilderness adventure.
The Salmon River is an amazing backdrop to one of the West’s classic whitewater river journeys. Canyon walls carved over millions of years hide quiet pools that separate numerous Class III rapids with names like “Lorna’s Lu-Lu” and “Bodacious Bounce.” Group members can float in rafts with experienced river guides or, for the more adventurous, navigate the rapids in their own inflatable kayaks. Our journey includes two nights at the riverside Little Salmon Lodge, four nights of beach camping and five days of exciting Class III whitewater. This adventure is appropriate for anyone seven years and older and is ideal for beginners and seasoned rafters.
Our travel partner, Northwest Voyageurs, has more than 31 years of experience running the highest quality outdoor adventures.
Early reservations are recommended as space is limited on this excursion. To make a reservation, simply call the Caltech Alumni Association at (626) 395-8366 or visit http://www.alumni.caltech.edu/travel
