Well, we are home again now but that was the most fun I've had in a LONG time. My husband, my son and I did a great job maneuvering the rapids on the Hiwassee River. I know you seasoned rafters/canoers/kayakers are thinking how easy the Hiwassee is, and for the most part it was, but there were a few hairy moments and we did get stuck several times LOL. I haven't had the photos developed yet (from my waterproof disposable camera) but I did take a few with my digital camera before and after that I will post here.
I tell you, I cannot WAIT to do it again, and even kayak. I swear that looks like SO MUCH FUN!! I know it's not as easy as it looks, but I am dying to do it. Unfortunately, we won't be able to go again until summer, 2007, but I am hoping to talk my dear darling husband into renting a cabin for a week, then inviting our WHOLE FAMILY to come and stay with us.
Today, Sunday, we drove to the Ocoee to see just what that was all about. OH MY GOD -- we can't wait to raft on the Ocoee! I swear, though, I want to have the whole family there and have a guide with us. I know everyone would have a BLAST!
Here are some photos that I took at the Ocoee (click photo to enlarge):
