Steve and I have talked about white water rafting for years. It's something I've wanted to try since I was fifteen. So it seemed like something fun, new, and exciting to do for our Anniversary.

We celebrated twelve years with a BIG SPLASH! The girls went to grandma's leaving us free to do something not quite so kid friendly.
The river was high and running quite fast. (7 cubic feet per second)
I must say[sheepish grin] I was a little nervous to start out, but the guides were great.
They told us exactly what to do, so even when we broadsided a huge rock, we knew exactly what to do. WE DIDN'T EVEN FLIP THE BOAT!
Rowing was tough to synchronize at first, but Lee out trusty guide shouted out "forward one--forward two etc."
It was a total rush, even when the waves completely engulfed us.
I can't believe I'm saying this (chicken that I am . . .)
but I'd go again in a heart beat.
Thank's for a great ride Liquid Descent.
