WATERSPORTS -- A free program to spike your adventure bucket list is scheduled tonight as veteran river rat and gifted photographer Pam Rogers presents a show on her 13-day raft trip on the very wild Tatshenshini-Alsek rivers.

The program is sponsored by the Spokane Mountaineers tonight, 7 p.m. at Mountain Gear Headquarters, 6021 E. Mansfield Ave., in Spokane Valley.

The group raft trip streamed through wilderness portions of the Yukon, British Columbia and Alaska.

"Insane rafting while glaciers calved in the river and mountains around me!" Rogers says. "Tons of wildlife, wildflowers and icebergs in the river! Incredible weather and clear views of Mount Fairweather while floating from the Yukon to the ocean."
