Raft the river, ride the rails starting Saturday
The historic Eagle Cap Excursion Train and Winding Waters Rafting announce the opening of the River to Rails Expedition season.
The experience will include a raft trip down the roadless Wallowa River from Minam to Rondowa, the confluence with the Grande Ronde River, where rafters meet up with the Eagle Cap Excursion Train.
Rafters leave the water and climb aboard the train for a scenic ride back up the canyon to Minam.Rafters have the option to paddle a single-person inflatable kayak or participate as a raft team member. The day trip can also be booked as a weekend get-away, which includes an overnight stay at the Minam Motel.
Expeditions are offered on Saturdays June 27 to Aug. 1, river flows permitting.
Space is limited. For more information call 1-877-426-7238 or go online to www.windingwatersrafting.com.
