“Over the next 100 hours, Wyatt, my longtime friend and paddling partner, and I would descend the La Venta River. Our route would start just below the Aguacero Waterfall and weave its way to Nezahaulcoyotl Lake, with more than 1,000 feet of drop over the 50-mile descent. This late in the season it is only navigable with packrafts.” - Read about @andrewfitts and @wyattoming’s full adventure here: https://gearjunkie.com/paddling-la-venta-river-mexico ☝️link in profile
