For our big summer vacation this year, we went on a two day whitewater rafting trip on the Trinity River. Today we drove up to the campground near Helena and met the rest of the group and the guides. The rest of the group was 17 members of a very funny and energetic family mostly from the L.A. area who were having a family reunion. The company that planned the trip Birch Circle Adventures took care of every detail for us, including some very delicious meals. They even remembered to bring the marshmellows, chocolate and gramham crackers! I’ll have some pictures later from the actual rafting portion of the trip later, as it wasn’t recommend to bring the camera on the rafts. However, there is a company that takes pictures at the one real knarly section of the rapids and they have proofs ready for you at the end of your trip, sort of like the rides at amusement parks. Once I get the final prints, I’ll post some rather amazing shots of us shooting the rapids.
