Rafting and Kayaking Adventures

white water Rafting with Disco

Being on a river can be a lot liking hiking, except you don’t have to do much work.  A river has the ability to mesmerize people, and take them away from their everyday worries.  The water is a place where everyone is friendly and barriers come down and depending on the river it may be a place for you to act completely different than you would in your everyday life.  We spend the majority of our day trying to avoid conflict and avoid the rough parts.  We don’t want anything too rough and if we make it through the day, without any bumps, we are ok.  On rivers, we often steer for the roughest places; many people pay guides to intentionally put them in the rough spots. This is the charm, the allure and the mystique of moving water.

As American naturalist and Pulitzer Prize winning Author wrote:

“To the lost man, to the pioneer penetrating a new country, to the naturalist who wishes to see the land at its wildest, the advice is always the same, follow a river.  The river is the original forest highway.  It is nature’s own Wilderness Road.”

River Rafting in Jackson Hole Wyoming

I had never been rafting to Jackson Hole.  In matter of fact, I had only been to Jackson Hole once that I could remember prior to the summer of 2013.  I really wanted to get out of the state for some rafting and heard that the daily on the Snake River was pretty fun....
