White Water Rafting 2007!

These are out of order a little bit but you can see what is going on. I believe this was 2 summers ago. Summer of 07. My friend finally sent these to me. . . I have been asking for these pictures off and on for the last year. So on this particular raft trip we had about a dozen of us in the raft. I did not know everyone. My sister and a couple of our friends were on board. The newbies did not know what they were doing. We told them that we had to paddle through the big rapids or we would flip. . . did they listen. . . NO! So what happened. . . we flipped the raft. It was an exciting trip to say the least. I have done this hundreds of times so I had no fear. . . we did have couple of rookies that were a little scared. Overall it was a great day. This is one of the reasons I have to get out to Idaho/Wyoming each summer. The sad thing is, we probably won't make it out there this year.

Flipping. . .


Just before we flipped!

flipped!!! Its about time!


Where did everyone go?


Some were a little nervous here . . .

There we all are!


Counting heads!




Who is missing?


Looks like everyone is here.


That was awesome!


Where are all the paddles?

The paddle is your ticket back into the raft. Before we leave we tell everyone that if you fall out the only way back in is with the paddle.


We are holding paddles up and counting!
