AWC Monthly Topic: Solo Boating the Grand Canyon with Bruce Cline

Bruce Cline is a private boater, having started rafting in the late 1970s while a student at UNM. He was an AWC member in its very early years. While a student, he and a partner formed and operated a small rafting company for 10 years, running the Rio Grande, Rio Chama, and Arkansas Rivers. He was adjunct faculty for 20 years (combined) teaching whitewater rafting at both UNM and San Juan College in Farmington. Much of his recent boating has been as a soloist, having run solo raft trips of various lengths (1 to 30 days) on the Colorado, Rio Grande, Rio Chama, Shenandoah, Potomac, New, and Arkansas Rivers. He has also dabbled in solo canoeing, kayaking, and stand up paddle boarding. He is now retired, living in the Denver area with his wife, adult child, and elderly father. In 2013 he authored “Never Boat Alone, A Guide to Solo Boating the Colorado River through Grand Canyon.”
