Sometimes a little adrenalin is a great way to de-stress, this trip sure did the trick.
The entire trip was a little over three hours including the bus ride to and from launch points (maybe two and a half hours on the water so make sure your sunscreen is waterproof). Remember these pictures were taken near the end. Once we were safely over the falls, we were able to turn and watch the next boat go over. They did not listen to their guide and two people got spilled out. We paddled like mad after one of them and "He who is good at pulling people out of the river" got to pull him in. The other was quickly rescued by a third boat.
Did I mention the average water temp is 50 degrees F (approximately 10 degrees C)?
Anyone else want to try?
