First Descent: Michoacán Episode 2

Scouting begins and the team members discover they may not make it

Professional kayakers Dane Jackson, Rafa Ortiz, Joel Kowalski and friends explore rural western Mexico in search of un-paddled rivers and adventure. The expedition dodges drug cartel territory and dangerous terrain and along the way finds the most spectacular kayak paddling in the country.

In this second episode of First Descent: Michoacán the group is faced with a dangerous river obstacle and decide the risk is too great to endanger their lives. It's a hard choice after coming so far, but they're also finding epic rivers that push their skills, and discovering the beauty of a culture and land that is completely foreign to them.
