Rafting the White Salmon River

This picture was taken before we knew what we were getting ourselves into.!
Becky, Mom, Dad, Adam and I along with our guide ZaK!

Little did we know that this was just a few miles down the river! Class 4 rapid!
We were completely submerged under water for a few seconds. Adam and I were in the front so we were down there the longest!

That was definitely on of the craziest rafting trips I have ever taken. There was a lot of big rapids and technical maneuvers we had to pull. The rafting place we went through was awesome! Zollers was really well orginized and came with all the gear you needed. Notice how we were all whereing matching wet suits! There is nothing cuter then trying the shove yourself in a skin tight wet suit! As a side note we had a celiberity in our rafting group! Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Elaine Benes from Seinfeld) was there with her family on a family reunion of sorts. She is a lot shorter then I thought! I was really funny when we had gone down the big waterfall rapid we were hanging out watching the other people go down the rapids and a lady in Julias boat fell out and our guide started yelling "Elaine fell out of the boat, Elaine is out of the boat." We were all dieing laughing!
