My wife has tried to get me interested in white-water rafting but it's not for me. There is a section of the Snake river in eastern Idaho near the Wyoming border where she had tried to talk me into it claiming the rapids are "mild". No way, Jose!

I went canoing on the Russian river in Northern California once. Ended up with the canoe upside down and all the gear on the bottom. Never, again!

Anyway, nice shot of the raft. Is this used on the Colorado?

These big rafts are designed to handle the Colorado's huge rapids in the Grand Canyon. They are powered by a quiet 25 hp outboard, which you can just make out at the back of the raft.

The guides are expert at handling the raft and cooking good meals. I have shots of the kitchen "tools", but they have a lot of people in them.

It's a great trip.
