Rafting Trip!

Wednesday, September 30, 2009
This past weekend I went on a company rafting/camping trip.

I'm going to start by saying that I've never been to Trout Lake, WA, and - honestly - I didn't even know it existed. Camping was fun outside of this tiny town, although it did get MUCH colder in the middle of the night than any of us expected (by about 15 degrees!)

Rafting was an awesome experience. We went on a guided trip provided by Zoller's Outdoor Odysseys. The idea was great, though we were hitting the White Salmon river at its lowest water level all year, so we did ground on several underwater boulders early on. Another fun fact? The water was 38 degrees Fahrenheit. Thank goodness we all had wetsuits; hypothermia was not how I wanted to spend a company retreat.

Can you find the 7 people ini this raft?

The highlight of the trip was the drop down Husum Falls, a 10-foot (give or take) waterfall. It was exciting and - despite the dire warning of the guide - not scary at all.

I can't wait for the next adventure!
