White Water Rafting

There’s nothing like the rush you get when navigating through white water rapids — down every wave, eddy, pillow, and drop of water — as you’re rollin’, rollin’, rollin’ down the river. Rapids can be aggressive, yet graceful, providing a certain poetry in motion in the sport of white water rafting; in between rapids there’s always a proverbial calm before a storm — almost always with beautiful scenery — but when the hydraulic storm hits, it tosses and turns you (and sometimes flips you) like an angry beast. However, it is never actually angry (unless you’re feeling mythological) for that’s just the nature of rapids, merely flowing perpetually as Mother Nature intended — which is a good thing for adrenaline junkies inside kayaks and inflatable rafts.
