On the weekend of Aug. 19-21, we had a full house of 16 women participate in the Chama Mama 3-day Chama Wildermess trip, a New Wave tradition. The four staff were: Kathy Miller, Pres. of New Wave, CJ Robison (who has been with New Wave for over 10 yrs.), Elisha MacArthur (guide from the Arkansas River) and Lorie Bonds Lopez, formerly an Outward Bound course leader. The group had good water and not much rain! Here’s what the group organizer has to say:
The Leslie Barclay party journeyed down the Rio Chama with us on July 19 and 20. Kathy Miller, President of NWRCo., led the overnight trip, with the support of NWR staff Joe Cameron, Lillian Wilson (aka Sancho Panza) and Jesse Verellen. I understand that they had a great time! The Rio Chama Wild and Scenic river is one of the charter rivers in the Federal Wild and Scenic system, and flows through the Carson National Forest Chama Canyon Wilderness. Here’s what one guest said: “I thoroughly enjoyed the river trip! Cathy and the others were all joys to work with! Thanks again, Sandy”
A group of ladies organized by Elizabeth Wallen, of Columbus, Ohio, bought out our June 1-3 Rio Chama Wilderness trip. By all accounts, they had a fabulous time!
