Patagonia is one of the few places on the planet with untouched and undiscovered corners still remaining. Yet, at this very moment, its rivers and wildlands are under attack. Big business seeks to choke two of the region’s most pristine rivers with mega-dams and plans to decimate unique forest ecosystems to build the longest power line in the world. Follow Team Rios Libres led by professional athlete, Timmy O’Neill and luminary writer, Craig Childs as they immerse themselves into this remote region. Find out what they discover on their journey from the source of the Baker River to the sea. Filled with inspiring imagery, compelling interviews and a bit of adventure, you’ll gain an understanding of how this huge hydroelectric scheme would forever change the face and character of the area and why we must act now to Keep Patagonia Wild.

In August, we were called on a SAR mission to help an overdue hiker near the Necklace Valley region. As SAR members were preparing to go into the field, they recieved word that John had found his way back out of the backcountry and hitched a ride to North Bend.

I could not think of a better way to start this blog than with this video. It’s kinda strange to watch a video of a rainbow for so long, but I somewhat was entranced by his reaction. I thought *I* appreciated the outdoors but ‘yosemitebear’ puts me to shame. Rainbows FTW!
