Get the inside scoop on the best places
to go Whitewater Rafting,
Each spring, the streams and rivers build up a head of water from the snows melting down from the mountains. This water pours into the rivers and streams that can cause some pretty fast running water. Long time ago, Lumberman would take advantage of the high waters and drive logs to the market. The logs, some stretching over 20 miles long, would roar down the river on a high spring freshet. Today there are no more logs but the ones that have fallen in, but there is the challenge and adventure of Whitewater Rafting, with 12 man rafts, canoes, and even kayaks.
What is Whitewater Rafting? You put on a wetsuit, climb aboard a raft, grab a paddle, and shove off.
