Last night was the overnight rafting trip for the middlers and seniors, and I had the opportunity of tagging along! It turned out nothing like I expected!
The beginning of the trip was fairly normal. We ate breakfast, hopped on the road, and were way excited for a great time! When we arrived, we lathered on sunscreen, got settled in the rafts and away we went. Yay! The first few rapids were great fun, and when it started to rain we just ignored it, figuring that it would go away in a minute… but it didn’t. Ten minutes later it was still raining, and we were soaked. Not long after that, it began to hail. So we found a place to get out of the river. Our guides lifted the rafts up into a parking lot and leaned them against the fence. They made really great shelter to keep us dry. Then Jeff showed up with the bus!! Yay Jeff!
We made it to the outpost without any further exciting events. The night was spent eating pizza and s’mores and was a great ending for the trip! The next morning we hopped in the bus and arrived back at Rockbrook. What an awesome trip!
