Jan 01, 2013 — We'll take a break from the cold and snow and listen as Adirondack teacher and rafter Becky Pelton talks about a recent trip on the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon. Pelton is Long Lake Central School's speech pathologist. She and her husband, Nate, also run the North Creek Rafting Company. They are avid rafters and paddlers. She kept a journal and blogged during the trip and will share photos and videos with Long Lake students and the community later this year.
Becky and Nate joined six friends on a 280-mile journey down the Colorado in late November and early December. Todd Moe spoke with Becky about the trip, which she described as a three-week trek at the bottom of the "Big Ditch", with lots of red sand, Great Blue Herons and rough rapids.
