Counter Balance – A Film by Gordon Klco

6 Min. Watch

Counter Balance is a short film about giving back to the brave men & women of our military who have served us all. Too many have returned from deployments ill-equipped for civilian life, but on a 4-day rafting trip on the Green River in Dinosaur National Monument, veterans are given the opportunity to come together to laugh, to cry, and to purge it all among friends on an experience that taps into the restorative power of wilderness.
