LA Mountaineers News:
 
Join the Los Alamos Mountaineers for an exciting presentation by Rachel Robey, a Los Alamos native and kayaking fiend! Her presentation is titled “Life is Short, Paddle Hard.”

The Mountaineers meet at 7 p.m. Wednesday, July 15 at Fuller Lodge. The program will begin at 7:30 p.m. Robey began kayaking as a wee little thing, making her first forays into the river with her family as a young child. Through a series of events, she became avid about the sport of whitewater kayaking and the many opportunities it offers.

In recent years, she has traveled around the western United States to pursue the various disciplines of creeking, multiday river running, and play-boating.

From the local Rio Grande to Colorado Rivers and deep canyons of the Rocky Mountains up to the big waters of Idaho, she has found in paddling a way to challenge herself, become immersed in the power of the outdoors, and a strong sense of community with fellow whitewater enthusiasts, wherever the river carries her.
