White-Water Rafting



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.)

It's been so hot and humid for the past week or so that everyone is trying to find ways to cool off. This looks as if it might do the trick. I took this picture at the Nantahala River in North Carolina in May, 2009.

No doubt it would be a cool thing to do. You will never see me doing it though. I am chicken when it comes to water.

Looks refreshing! But I'm definitely not brave enough to try. I like my kayak on calm waters. :-)

The guide looks like she's having as much fun as they are - and staying a lot dryer. Makes me cooler just looking at it.
