Who and What is Voices of the San Juan?
Voices of the San Juan is nothing more than a passion project started in 2019 by Sam Travis and Jerad Bussell. While spending time at Fort Lewis College, they became captivated with fly fishing, and subsequently, the time they spent out-doors was and continues to be their salvation.
What is the San Juan?
We define the San Juan as the vast expanse of the San Juan River watershed. This includes the San Juan Mountains and the three San Juan Counties.
There is something special in this place that we call our home, and it all originates in the San Juan Mountains - one of the most spectacular areas in the world. And the San Juans' waters - that fall from the snow in Winter and flow heavily during the Spring - flow into the Uncompahgre and the Animas and the San Juan Rivers, and they flow out into Northern New Mexico, and into Utah, and eventually make their way to the reservoir of John Wesley Powell, exiting into Arizona, flowing throughout the grandeur that is the Grand Canyon. And the Grand Canyon is this great crescendo in the symphony that is the Colorado Plateau, and the San Juans are the Colorado Plateau's greatest spectacle. And they are the most special place on Earth. REVISE REVISE REVISE
