Britt Runyon whitewater rafting guide

We had all foreign guests today – a French couple and an English family. The Armstrong family, from England, did the Racecourse rapids in the afternoon, joining Dominique and Olivier, who were doing the full-day Rio Grande Gorge trip. Britt Runyon was their guide. The river is running 565 cfs today, and it’s warm. A beautiful day to go rafting on the Rio Grande river!

In conjunction with our partners at Santa Fe Mountain Adventures, we launched our 2014 season-opener this morning (the full-day Rio Grande Gorge trip) , with the Midgen family of California. This trip starts in the Orilla Verde section of the newly-declared Rio Grande del Norte National Monument, passes through the little village of Pilar and finishes with the Racecourse rapids. Their guide today is Britt Runyon. The high temp today will be 75 degrees, with water temp of 57 degrees. What a beautiful day!

The southwest is land of distant views, violent thunderstorms, cold wind-blown winter days, and above all ‘light’.  For a hundred years the southwest has pulled in some of the great talent in painting and photography simply with the quality of its light.  Some of the friends of New Wave Rafting have had the pleasure of watching Britt emerge as a leader in landscape photography and to start his journey documenting this remarkable plateau.   We are extremely proud to feature a few of Britt’s photographs in a new “full page” gallery.   Here in Britt’s gallery you can wander the plains of Taos in the dead of winter or delight in the golden colors the Grand Canyon.

Come enjoy Britt’s photography gallery and don’t forget to zoom the gallery to full page.  Some of our friends just put Britt’s gallery on the screen and let it run as background.
