Alek the Raft Guide!

rafting shot This picture was shot on August 3rd, 1997 on the Arkansas River at the "Zume Flume" rapids (that's the big boomer at the end of Brown's Canyon where they shoot the photos) at a water level of about 2,000 cubic feet/second.

Yes, that is me in the back guiding - special thanx to Jonnie Gortex (dude with sunglasses and no hat) for letting me run his boat. Note that the day earlier, this boat completely flipped at this same spot and my "tough chick" girlfriend Wendy (with sunglasses right in front of me) left claw marks in my arm as she got ejected ... just before I got tossed out too! ;-)

With me guiding this day, we didn't lose anyone! ;-)
