There are two things you should know about Aly. The first is that she is from Colorado, a fact she talks about too much. The second (and more important) thing to know about Aly is that she is a national jump rope champion. Aly started rafting after Scotty Scheu told her she should. She used deductive reasoning and assumed because Scotty is awesome, that rafting too must be awesome. Her thought process was correct. Her favorite part about working at Mother Lode is giving Friends of the River talks and telling visitors what they can do to protect rivers. At camp Aly can most easily be found in the kitchen making and eating chicken piccata.
