Rafting

Rafting!  This is white water rafting and there are many places you can enjoy this.  Some are fun float down the river in hot water type trips, others much more strenuous fighting rapids.  What time of year you can has a lot to do with how high the water can be, how difficult the rafting might be.  There are different sized rafts piloted by skilled guides.  Hubby and I enjoyed a white water rafting trip years ago out in Utah.  There was some calm and we were able to take in the beauty of the area.  There is one picture of us in the raft......this isn't it.  Perched high on a cliff a professional photographer snapped pictures as the rafts rounded the bend.  You then had the option to view them and purchase them later.

State Parks, National Parks and Forest Preserves often have organized raft trips that vary in skill needed.  I'm not a good swimmer and so once was probably enough for me to feel that my card is punched on this particularly outdoor activity.

Goodness, we're rounded in on Letter R of our A-Z challenge, not many letters left.

**After the close of April's A-Z, I plan to continue to write a post a day in the month of May using again the A-B-C's as my guide.  My focus for the month of May will be Spain.  I've been planning and almost have every letter thought out.  If others are interested in continuing to blog daily using our A-B-C's, please let me know.  We could start a linky and continue what we've begun during April.  I don't imagine it will be anywhere near the scope of the annual April Challenge.  But, if you're interested, please let me know in your comment.  And even if you're not up for another blog challenge, do stop back in, I have much to share from recent travels to Spain.**

  1. Hi Sandy...This is neat...your theme and title for the AtoZ Challenge, and a great way to continue your travels in Spain. Would love to go there, so I will look forward to your shares in May. As for River Rafting...I have done a couple down the Rio Grande near LaJitas, Tx, where the rapids run according to the level of the river. When it's low the ride is a lazy day with picturesque views and time for picture taking, but when it's high...hang on for dear life. The over night trips are a great experience as well. Fun R post...thanks for the reminder of a fun time.

  2. Love the River Rafting experience you had. Our family did a river rafting trip on the Poudre River in Colorado - so much fun (a little terrifying) but stories were had by all.

  3. I would love to try this but the idea of white water rafting always scared the beejaysus out of me…. nice to know you can do it on calmer waters too…. another one to add to the list for next time in America lol

  4. I love white-water rafting, but haven't gone in a few years. I'll have to find time to go again. Thanks for reminding me.

  5. I've run all the American Rivers, the Colorado and a couple in So. America. Nothing is more exciting and rewarding for me. Great post and just my kind of topic. Thanks.

  6. Rafting! Oh, it's been ages! The last time I went, I think I was 17. We took too calm a river too. I always wanted to try the Snake River because I'd heard such good things about it, but I probably would have ended up in the water. I think tubing was more fun than rafting.

    1. Sephanie, you've not left the link to your blog; just your google+ page. When I go there it appears to be a closed blog as it says you've not shared anything with me, so I guess you're set to accept only visitors who are google+ who are in your circles? Sorry I wasn't able to return your visit and comment.

  8. Rafting is a great time - I've been a few times in BC but never abroad. Great post and great idea to continue the challenge for the month of May, I only wish I had your stamina - I can't wait for it to be over and return to my 2-3 posts/week :)

  9. Rafting is so much fun, I have done it in Norway in Sjoa (well known for rafting in Norway). Be careful doh it can be dangerous, I know, we had a little accident, but I would still do it again.
