Trixie's NWRC Song

by Zachary Collier

One of our guides Trecia (a.k.a. "Trixie" or "Treesh") wrote this song about Northwest Rafting Company on our last Rogue River trip. Enjoy!

Don't know why it requires degradation
for the public to give the river a little appreciation.
You don't have to know about conservation
because we're here to change your life
and take you on vacation

Yeah a gear boat is much more than critical mass
but we are industry leaders and totally bad ass
Our really good looks may be deceivin'
but you should trust we have a job that we all truly believe in

You don't have to be a guide or a guest
to share your passion for rivers in the Northwest
You may just think you're going boating
but your ideas may change while you are floating
You may have lived a life of regret
But this is a home that we must all protect

Some old behaviors you may need to stamp out
but life will get much better once you chill and camp out
And this is why we must implore
That you take time out of your life to go explore
So we share with you our creed
Take you down this river we Explore, Protect and Lead

This song captures our new company mission to Explore, Lead, and Protect. We're all excited about what we're doing and where we're headed!

Smoke amongst the trees during the Big Windy Complex Fire

My first encounter with what would become the Big Windy Fire, was in the early morning hours of July 26. I was woken up by a loud crack, and as my groggy vision came into focus, realized that like many soggy campers before me, the chance I had taken in sleeping out in the open was about to not pay off. As I scrambled to toss what I could in my dry bag, and began the slog across the lawn of Paradise Lodge to the covered...

Rivers are the saws of the Earth, cutting their way through millions of years of lava flows and landslides to create the canyons we see today. The Rogue River is one of these canyons. It was formed with the Klamath Mountain range and yields some spectacular geology, some of which is more than 150 million years old. From the start to the end of the trip, boaters float through three geological formations. Rogue Formation Dothan Formation Flournoy Formation Rogue Formation The Rogue Formation begins at Galice and continues to...
