Salt Lake City, UT – Bert Loper met his first love when he was 24 years old. He had lived a hard life - abused, orphaned, roaming from one backbreaking job to another. But when he came upon the Colorado River, his life would ever after follow its flow. Biographer Brad Dimock has written a new book about Loper. Tuesday, he joins Doug to tell the story of early river running in the West and of a man that encapsulated the spirit of the Colorado.
