Ashland, OR HYBRID
August 11 - August 14
This AWLS course/rafting adventure with Med Treks International begins in Ashland, OR. There will be one day of lecturing at the historic Ashland Springs Hotel before heading out on the Upper Klamath. From there, the real adventure begins. The Upper Klamath has a high desert Old West character. There is a pioneer flavor with canyon dotted with Native American and frontier relics, rapid names straight out of a Western, and a ride along an old stage coach track that winds through remote pine forests and beautiful meadows. In between rafting and class time, take part in hiking, fly-fishing, and deserved relaxation time. Come take part in this unique course opportunity before the dams along the river are removed, altering this landscape in unknown ways.
