Thursday Getaway: Salween Spring

April 28 2016

Salween Spring from NRS Films on Vimeo.

"On any river, anywhere in the world, just being on a wild river, it brings out the best in people." 

This statement rings true to us, perhaps now more than ever. In our increasingly non-stop society, it's imperative that we all stop from time to time and enjoy something wild and free in our natural world. We invite you to stop what you're doing right now and watch the short film, Salween Spring, presented by NRS, directed by Will Stauffer-Norris and produced by Travis Winn and Last Descents River Expeditions. It's a great reminder of what's important in life.

 Here's what this film is all about, from Vimeo:

"Meet Travis Winn, an American who traveled to China for the first time 15 years ago to join his dad on a first descent of the Headwaters of the Salween River in Tibet. On that first trip Travis realized that most Chinese citizens had no way to get out and experience free-flowing rivers. And later he learned that at the rate these rivers were being dammed, very few people would ever have a chance to see the rivers in their pristine and natural state. Risking his mental and physical health, Travis continues to strive toward his personal goal to bring the Chinese people closer to their rivers."
