ABC Wednesday #28: W

17 Dec

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.

First you float along quiet stretch of the river for the better half of the day. Then you stop for a bbq dinner that your guides prepare.

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!

    I should have done that when I was younger – too late now with my bad back. I wouldn’t be able to withstand all the bumps and jolts, but sure wish I’d done it before!

    I thoroughly enjoyed white-water rafting on my first (and only) trip. You got some great pictures.

    Now that’s what I call white water rafting! We did it once as a family, but it was too tame!

    I was smiling on my seat looking at your shouting and hooting. Wish I could do that again soon.

    That looks so much fun but I would freak out if the water would get into my face like that lol.
