Emma Ratkovic returns to share another episode in her podcast for Voices of Utah. This time: Kayaking the Jordan River and Beyond with Viviana Hernandez. An outdoor recreational enthusiast, Hernandez also hails from Rose Park. Her passion for nature was sparked by none other than the Jordan River waters running through her own backyard. From the first time she took a boat to the water, she has been on a quest to fully embrace and discover the wonders of mother nature, with a particular fondness for rivers. In this episode, Hernandez takes us on a journey through her many outdoor adventures, her deep connection with water, and her love for Rose Park.
