Rafting Box Canyon

We have always floated down Box Canyon in my Grandfathers old military raft. Sadly, several years ago, the raft had to be retire since it was no longer sea worthy in any sense!

Now, we rent. The first trip down was with Heather, Soren, Max, Sophie and Calvin and yours truly. I got to sit on the front end of the raft and look out for snags and Heather got to sit in the back to steer and make sure no kids were leaning over too far. Happily no one fell in and we had a great time.

Hey! We know those guys! It's Jason and Scott!

The second time down the canyon, Amber and Jason took Phoebe, Jacob and Sophie and Koo and I floated down in inner tubes. I have to say, once your bum goes numb from the cold water, it's much more fun to be in a tube, especially through the rapids!

Notice Sophie holding on to my foot. The raft goes a lot faster than a tube. It requires some arm rowing to keep up.

Note to self: Somehow you missed the sunscreen on your legs. You are going to regret that.

Wait, we know this guy!

It's Scott - still out fishing!

Sophie can find bugs anywhere!
