I developed a love of rivers by innertubing the Kings River in the Sanger, Reedley and Kingsburg area of California, starting around 1970. In 1982, I became a whitewater kayaker and soon explored more and more of the rivers and creeks around the Fresno area. I continue to enjoy exploring new rivers and seeing new aspects of familiar rivers. I feel a responsibility to protect our rivers. There is much good that we gain from wild rivers.
