Clavey Falls on the Tuolumne River in California
takes viewers on an around-the-world journey by river and begins with a tribute to North American rivers. Some of the waterways highlighted are well known and well traveled, such as the Tuolumne in California and the Colorado as it flows through the Grand Canyon. While some are known as white water rivers, the program also focuses on the great diversity of river experiences available. Some of the waterways featured are quite tranquil in nature while others are remote and obscure. But each has a wonderful story to tell." Mark Angelo
