We have been running multiple trips daily on the Lower Yough with some of our seasoned veterans returning for their yearly rafting trips. Summer's Best Two Weeks had their first 3 trips of the year with us. This camp, based out of Boswell, PA, brings campers to the Lower Yough as a guide escorted trip every two weeks throughout the season. Their trips are usually the first ones on the river, with an early morning launch time of 9:30, and are hitting the take-out around noon so campers can pursue an afternoon of activities.
This past week, we also held our annual Nemacolin Woodlands Adventure Center staff trip on the Lower Yough. Their staff shows up whenever they can close down the Adventure Center and we run an express Fully Guided trip down the Lower Yough, stopping only at Jump Rock to cool off.
With all the great happenings in Ohiopyle, the town is suffering a great lost to the rafting community. Donald "The Booster" Harshyne passed away at the beginning of the month. Bo was a living legend in Ohiopyle, guiding for 32 years on the Yough, Cheat, Gauley, and Russell Fork rivers. He was a staple member of our Upper Yough staff, helped out on busy days around the base, and ran the Lower Yough when needed. He will be greatly missed by our staff, and the whole Ohiopyle community.
