DIVING INTO THE JUNGLE: SUP FIRST-DESCENTS IN THE PERUVIAN AMAZON

Photos and Words by Jess McGlothlin
"People are changed by the jungle."
The words came from the darkness next to me, tinted with the lyrical tones of a Peruvian accent. We were all exhausted; soaking from a late-afternoon deluge as we'd stopped to unload the boats for the night and worn from a week of travel. But it was a satisfied exhaustion, one where life is just as it should be.
When in the midst of good people in an exceptional place, it's hard to be anything but satisfied. And in these places when life is drawn down to its most simple aspects, it's possible to see just how much experience changes us.
