What a THRILL

So I've found that I have fallen in love with whitewater rafting. I keep reliving the experience and wishing it could have lasted longer! It was much more fun than I could have ever imagined. I think my cousin-in-law described it best, as insanely fun. Though there was also that sense of danger, mixed with an incredible thrill and excitement. It reminded me of how I feel about rollercoasters or scary movies -- scared but still wanting to experience it. I've never done such an "extreme" sport before, where there's an actual threat of death or at least being severely injured. I know it sounds like an exaggeration, but you wouldn't think so if you'd been through the intense rapids that we faced on that trip!

And after receiving the postcard from our guide the other day, we are DEFINITELY going for a second trip before the season's over. We have to. I don't even care if we have to sacrifice every little bit of fun to save up the money, WE'RE GOING. :) I really never thought I'd love it so much. I found myself reluctant to even let go of the paddle once it was all over, I just didn't want it to end!

On with the photos - starting off with some views of the ride up to the meeting place in Lotus, CA.
