I recognize that there is an element of risk in any adventure, sport, or activity associate with the outdoors.

LEWIS & CLARK EXPEDITIONS
NOTICE OF RISKS OF ACTIVITY
For over 45 years, river trips under several Lewis & Clark identities have provided safe and exciting river adventures for hundreds of thousands of clients. Our guides are experienced boatmen, but the presence of a guide or other staff is absolutely no assurance of safety or the lessening of risks inherent in or integral to the recreational activity. Each participant in a Lewis & Clark river trip understands and acknowledges that certain risks are integral or inherent to the recreational activity, that staff is available to answer any questions about such risks, and that such risks may cause loss or damage to personal property, illness, accidental personal injury or in some cases, permanent trauma or death, including without limitation by way of example:
1. Risk of hypothermia or drowning, heart failure, and trauma caused by hot sun or cold water, including being wet or cold, and uncomfortable.
2. Risks related to getting to, in or out of river rafts or boats caused by slippery, uneven or unstable ground or vessel surfaces.
3. Risks of head and other bodily injury from being thrown by the forces of water, out of the raft or boat onto rocks or tress or into dangerous rocks or cold water, gear, cargo, rigging, or other people.
4. Risks of exposure to sunburn, insect bites and stings or other wildlife or animal encounters.
5. Risks of injury during vehicular transportation to or from the river; and
6. Such other risks, hazards and dangers that are integral to high mountain river activities in a wilderness environment.
Each participant in a Lewis & Clark River Expeditions River Trip does so voluntarily, with full knowledge of the risks, and assumes all risks of such participation. Each participant has a duty to disclose any mental or physical problem(s) or limitation(s) that may affect participation.
