The Trail Less Traveled: Glenn Goodrich

This episode in particular was recorded on the edge of the Colorado River at Pipe Springs, where the Bright Angel Trail meets the Colorado River. I sat with my main river guide mentor, Glenn Goodrich, to talk to him about running over 445 rivers of the world since 1977. Glenn has been guiding since 1977 & when he is not guiding on the river... he is thoughtfully running rivers all over the world just for fun! Glenn has made multiple first descents around the world and doesn't have any plans for slowing down. Glenn's personal goal is to run 500 rivers before he retires.

Gulf Hagas Rafting Expedition

Ask any class V boater who has paddled Gulf Hagas in Maine and I'd bet at least 9 out of 10 will tell you that it is Maine’s best run. It is a beautiful canyon that has been enjoyed by paddlers and hikers for decades now but I had only seen it in books and videos. It has a steep creek flowing through a deep gorge that has some very attractive waterfall drops and challenging rapids with high consequences.
