Navigating the Nile of the West
Forging the Sacramento River from Mount Shasta to the Golden Gate Bridge…. “When you find a good adventure buddy, it’s like hitting the jackpot,” says outdoor enthusiast and paddler Ari Kosel. This, of course, is in reference to her friend and fellow paddler, Alyssa Winkelman. Not only are the two accomplished skiers and trained river guides, but they’ve also known each other since they were 6. Yet it was three years ago that they undertook their biggest expedition, becoming the first all-female crew to trace the Sacramento River from its source in Mount Shasta to the Pacific Ocean. They used a variety of human- powered means, including skis, packrafts and sea kayaks. It was a demanding journey, both physically and mentally. “We already had a really strong bond because we’ve been through lots of sometimes difficult life experiences together, but this made our relationship even stronger because it showed us that we can rely on each other more than you’d expect from a friend when things are really tough and you just want to be done,” says Winkelman.

About the Journey
Reaching New Heights with Shasta Mountain Guides…. In 1856, the Shasta Courier proclaimed: “September 16, the famous mountain Shasta Butte was ascended by a party of ladies, where they celebrated the admission of California into the Union. The ladies who performed this feat are Mrs. D. A. Lowry of Scotts Valley, Mrs. Eddy, Mrs. Gage and Mrs. J. White of Yreka, and Mrs. McLeod of Sacramento River. They have accomplished that which was thought…to be an impossibility.” At least in pioneer history, it was the first time any woman – let alone a group of women – had ever summitted Mount Shasta. The article goes on to say that they performed the expedition in the closest thing they had to pants – undergarments known as bloomers. “The suits which the ladies had worn in crossing the plains…were considered the only suitable dress in which [they] might be permitted to ride their surefooted mules in the perilous ascent of Mt. Shasta.”
