Laura Jones, Community Engagement Coordinator, Fennel Blyth, Native Seed Coop Coordinator and Amanda Webster, VISTA Volunteer got on the road early Saturday morning to meet up with 150 women for the 3rd Annual Ladies River Take Over on the Salt River.
It was the first time for these avid Verde River paddlers to brave the Salt River. The river is wider and faster then the Verde, but the fun of paddling with 150 other women took away any of their nerves. They braved the faster riffles and were in amazement of the Saguaro Cactus that stood all along the banks. The Wild Horses of the Salt River even greeted them at several spots along the banks.
Though the Verde will always be their home river it was great to experience the Salt!
