I have to admit I was very skeptical when my highly risk-adverse mom said she wanted to take on class four rapids. Turns out I was more of a Nervous Nelly when it came to it!!!!!
The US National Whitewater Rafting Center is an enormous outdoor recreation center that not only has rafting but has kayaking, canoeing, rock climbing, mountain biking, and hiking. The USNWRC is also the official Olympic training site for whitewater slalom racing.This fall their "mega zip" zip line is promised to be open (sounds cool).
Below you can't even see Chris and I, as we are completely submerged under a class 4 rapid at the front of the boat.
This place totally had our friend "Steve" written all over it. I also can see lots of our other friends enjoying this place when they come to visit! If my Mom can whitewater raft, you can too! (Awesome job Mom :)
It was a perfect way to do something adventurous over the weekend, we ended up having a blast & can't wait to go back again!!!!!!!!!!!
