Three cheers for Yosemite National Park for opening the Merced River to paddling after a 40 year ban!

Last week the Park hosted an inaugural paddle for a test run. Haven Livingston will report more about this in our upcoming June/July 2015 issue, so stay tuned for that!

In the meantime, get more info on the paddling the Merced at AmericanWhitewater.org.


Read Haven Livingston’s account of her epic year of whitewater kayaking in our April / May 2015 issue: Goal 100 – what one hundred days of whitewater taught me. Plus, check out her whitewater blog Wavehaven Adventures at wavehaven.wordpress.com.
