1859‘s braintrust, the Maxes and the Johnsons, packed up their kids and headed south for a rafting trip on the Wild and Scenic Rogue River. Below is a gallery of their trip, as well as some additional photos by excellent photographer Jason Mitchell and outdoorsman extraordinaire Bob Woodward.

Our intrepid editor and amateur videographer, Kevin Max, also shot a great video documenting the trip. Watch it here.


  • It was a true pleasure to host the 1859 magazine crew for this story. We had great weather, fantastic river conditions and of course a group of river runners who were up for having fun. Thank you for making it a great trip for us. The kids were hilarious and I love seeing the photos. We look forward to seeing you on the Rogue again.
    All The Best,
