River Rafting Guide Profiles
| || |
Andrew Brachle grew up just a stone’s throw away from the confluence of the Roaring Fork River and Colorado River in Glenwood Springs, Colorado. He began his rafting career on Shoshone of the Colorado in 1999 just prior to graduating high school. Since then he has logged over 10,000 miles on more than 75 stretches of whitewater from West Virginia to Washington State.
In 2009 he opened a gymnastics facility and a CrossFit gym with his beautiful and talented wife Teresa. You can find them rock climbing below Ajax, floating the Valley Floor in inflatable kayaks, biking over Lizard Head Pass, or rafting the San Miguel River in the breathtaking backyard they call Telluride.
Josh Johnson started raft guiding for TO in the spring of 2003. Since then he has developed a deep love for the river that has taken him down wild and scenic rivers such as the Grand Canyon, The Rogue, The Salt and The Middle Fork of the Salmon.
"I love the perspective the river reveals. Whether by raft, kayak or paddle board, the current of the river allows one to enter a medium perfectly tuned to the rhythm of nature".
Jamie Campbell has been a whitewater guide since 1994 on the Colorado, Arkansas, Roaring Fork and the San Miguel.
He has lived and traveled in South and Central America, Africa and U. S. East Coast.
Sailor, Skier, Snowboarder and Surfer, “Paddle or Die!” is a fitting mantra for a guy who lives for the great outdoors and has rafted all over the West.
John Warren was born in Harrisburg, PA and grew up on the Farmington and Naugatuck Rivers. Since beginning his professional whitewater career with Telluride Outside in 2001, Warren has become a whitewater maniac who has rowed some of the most exciting rivers in the West, including the Colorado through Cataract and Grand Canyons, the Pine Creek section of the Arkansas, the Deschutes and the hair-raising Upper Animas. Unafraid to swim clients, Warren brings enthusiasm, attitude and thousands of miles of river running experience to his oarsmanship on the San Miguel and Dolores. Jump in and hold on tight.
Kris’s passion for the river began at an early age in Grand Junction, Colorado, where he grew up rowing drift boats for his fish-crazed father. He picked up kayaking in high school and began guiding rafting trips for Telluride Outside in 2005. His boating experience ranges from the cold waters of Alaska to the desert rivers of Arizona. He’s most at home, however, in the Black Canyon of the Gunnison in Western Colorado.
As one of the owners and head guides of Telluride Outside, Kris thoroughly enjoys sharing his passion for rivers with everyone. He spends his winters as a ski racing coach for the Telluride Ski and Snowboard Club and guides for elk in the fall for Telluride Outside’s sister outfitter Telluride Hunting Guides.
