VetEx Whitewater Rafting and Climbing Browns Canyon Trip June 4-6 2013

Date: 21 Oct, 2013  No Comments

Browns VetEx group river 2VetEx teamed up with Dvorak Expeditions to run our first whitewater rafting/rock climbing expedition in Browns Canyon Colorado this June. This trip will run annually with the help of local fundraising in Salida Colorado. Contact VetEx to find out how you can help with fundraising or sign up for next years trip.

This trip was three days in Browns Canyon with two nights spent out under the stars. Twelve veterans and five non-veterans made up the trip. The veterans had the opportunity to guide the boats down the river and climb canyon rock to their hearts content. The vets on this trip spanned from Vietnam to just home from Afghanistan. The dynamic of the group was very positive with plenty of great conversations of good times and bad times spent serving this great country of ours.

This trip was made possible with fundraising from Jax Fish House/Big Red F Restaurant group Boulder CO.  Thank you Keen for donating river sandals to all of our veterans on this trip.  Thanks to Friends of Browns Canyon for the help and support. See you next year.
