Why be selfish? Rivers and wild places need friends if their interests are going to be safeguarded!

Below: Tim (rowing) and Paul in Triplet Rapid in Ladore Canyon, Dinosaur National Monument. A commercial guide leading another group took this photo. Triplet Rapid was the site of a 2009 pinning and drowning incident . Although the rapid is straightforward, great care must be taken to make sure you do not go on the right hand side (when facing downstream) of this rock shown here.
