Conquered The River (and Lunch too)

We just finished lunch, after a fun ride down the Shenandoah River. The guide claimed we did a few class 3 rapids, but I think he was being generous. Let's just say we did plenty of paddling.

Our guides were actually really cool and stopped the boats so we could try "swimming a rapid" ourselves. That is, jump from a rock into some whitewater and have it carry us through.

It was tons of fun, and the whole team took turns doing it - even though it looked insanely dangerous. I see now why we have to sign that waiver.

We had great time, and should all be mightily sore tomorrow.

Oh, I think I had the biggest injury. My leg was all scratched up and bleeding a bit. But don't feel too sorry for me, I did this to myself while leaving the changing room *after* the rafting. Who knew it was a class 5 changing room?
