We just returned from Durango, Colorado and a three-day adventure retreat with San Francisco-based Pantera Capital Management.  Special thanks to Southwest Adventure Guides, Mild-to-Wild Whitewater, Norton’s Catering, and of course the Pantera crew for a great trip.

On Friday the 16th we floated the Upper Box segment of the Piedra River.  The Upper Box is 10 miles of Class II through Class IV whitewater and the river cuts through tight stretches of narrow sandstone gorge.  On Saturday the team spread out around Durango for mountain biking and rock and alpine climbing.   Then on Sunday we navigated through an orienteering course before a barbecue lunch and plane flights back home!

Thanks again to Pantera for three days of great company and great adventure!  Stay tuned for more photos!
