As promised, here are the pictures of one of the other most exciting things we did in Colorado last week.
After watching the other rafters pass below us at Royal Gorge, we knew instantly we wanted to do that exact same thing. And so, a mere 24 hours later there we were... suiting up for our 3 1/2 hour white water ride down the Arkansas River.
Here's a brief sample of the 25 pictures the designated photographer took of us going down Sunshine Rapids, one of the largest level 5 rapids in all of North America.
Yes we were brave, yes we gritted our teeth (ok mostly *I* did) and YES - WE HAD A BLAST!
I highly recommend this to anyone who ever gets the chance. It was exhilarating when the water was fast, and magically beautiful when the river was lazy.
I thought Colorado was amazing on our honeymoon, and now 20 years later I'm blown away all over again. I think I've found my new favorite place.
