Every year, Laurie Lewis and Tom Rozum take some time away from road trips to make at least one river trip.
In the past, we've traveled the Rio Grande through Big Bend and the Taos Box, wound down the Salt River in Arizona, the Chama in Northern New Mexico, Oregon's Rogue, the Middle Fork of the Salmon in Idaho, and Northern California's Tuolumne.
On all their river trips, Laurie and Tom play music around the camps in the evening, while the guides are making delicious dinners for us. We often play on late into the night, and sometimes are joined by other musicians (you, if you come).

The Tuolumne's headwaters are high in the rugged Sierra Mountains in Yosemite National Park. The canyon setting is one of the greatest river trips ever offered and the backdrop for some of the greatest river stories ever told.
The Rogue River inspires strong loyalty that has many guests returning year after year, making it a regular part of their vacation plans. After your first trip through this lush, green canyon loaded with wildlife and stunning scenery, you will understand why it probably won't be your last.
Here's an article written about one of our past trips:
