Northwest Travel Magazine: Rafting 101-Navigating Northwest Rivers

1 08 2013

In my second feature for Northwest Travel Magazine I tell the story of my week long journey with Rogue Wilderness Adventures. This was easily the best time I’ve had doing “research” for a story. From the story:

“I had been rafting before, but only on a handful of quick half-day trips; never anything like this. I always experience butterflies when getting back in a raft. My senses are heightened, eyes are widened, but all worries go away once I hit the first rapid and get doused with cold mountain water. Like some sort of fear-baptismal, the trepidation is washed away and I’m born again with an ear-to-ear grin.”

I like to go canoeing on calm gentle waters. I am not brave enough for rapids! Love to read about them though. 😏

I hear you, Mary. I’d keep an open mind about it though. I’ll bet you could handle it 🙂
