Stephen Krale

Stephen Krale, whitewater guide for ARTA river tripsAt first glance, Stephen's fields of study at Humboldt State University, (Graphic Design, Photography, and Geology), seem a little disconnected. But who better to understand the scope and grandeur of millions of years of creation than an artist? And who better to explain it? Stephen's innovative mind and acute imagination, not to mention the fact that he really understands rocks, make each of his geology lectures something of a multi-ideological happening. When was the last time you heard "sedimentary stratification" and "impressionistic collage" in the same sentence? Add his warmth, patience, and enthusiasm and pretty soon you find yourself either identifying the formations or at least appreciating their beauty.
