As summer comes to a close, let Klean Kanteen and our partner American Rivers introduce you to a lesser known river you’ll surely love. Rio Rica combines stunning scenery with insightful commentary. Join Rica Fulton on a journey down the Little Snake River.

We’re here to share and adventure down a tributary of profound importance.

Our adventure begins by following Rica’s involvement monitoring a controversial Wyoming water project and personally observe what is at stake by putting her own boat on the river. Rica takes us beyond common public access boat ramps, and introduces the viewer to a little-known tributary of the renowned Yampa River. We follow Rica searching for adventure, solitude, reward and revelation in the divine interconnectivity of watersheds.
