In the summer 2011, a group of us armed with vouchers from Travelzoo, drove 1.5 hours to reach American River and start our day of adventure. We did our first ever (so far only one) white water rafting. It was so much fun.
After lunch and a brief rest which meant it was our last chance to visit the potty before we get back to the park, we floated along some more to more rocky stretches. We hit the white water and the shouting and hooting began.
Then we were completely washed out. We went through 2 more of this before the trip was over. Twas fun!
