Guide Profile: Roger and Linda Estey

Neil says I am living the charmed life of a retired firefighter. I guess it’s true. but I haven’t retired from river guiding! Winters find Linda and I paddling around the southern hemisphere or in desert canyons. But, the northern rivers keep luring us back in the summer. One of my specialities is astronomy and I have enjoyed many nights under the stars (after the midnight sun), sharing the wonder of the night sky away from city lights. Late August northern lights are another great memory.
