FLC students’ film ‘The Current’ chronicles Animas River journey to Lake Powell
Stephen Witherspoon, left, and Greg Cairns ended their 35-day journey at Lake Powell. They floated across the lake in a solar raft at approximately 2.5 mph. The raft was built by local companies Solar Works Durango and Jacks Plastic Welding of Aztec.
The filmmakers used several methods of transport during their 35-day journey. A solar raft is reassembled after the portage of Paiute Falls, just below the Clay Hills takeout in the San Juan River. The raft was built by local companies Solar Works Durango and Jacks Plastic Welding of Aztec.
Stephen Witherspoon, front, and Greg Cairns caught an airplane ride from pilot Brad Sablosky between Durango and Silverton to get aerial footage of the upper Animas River drainage.
The four adventurers escaped the June desert heat at Johns Canyon on the San Juan River.
