Longing to see more of what rivers have to offer

Rebecca Long | Alexandria, Virginia

Growing up my family spent many vacations along rivers on the east coast – not to mention the Potomac in our backyard. I found my love of rivers on the flat water of the Chesapeake Bay, but it wasn’t until a rafting trip along the Wild and Scenic Middle Fork Flathead River that I truly came to understand rivers and how they can suck you in, figuratively and literally. I now long to get back west and experience more of what wild rivers have to offer.
