Paddles, camping and sore muscles

This has to be one of the most exciting and invigorating three-day weekend trips we’ve done. Well, on second thought, I don’t know about physically invigorating (we’re dead beat!) but definitely mentally.

We spent two days on the lower Kern river, rafting its white waters. It was our first time going down a river on a raft, getting meals prepared for us on a camping trip and sleeping with no tent! I repeat… we slept with no tent! I had some pretty bad bug phobia at first, but really, I haven’t been crawled on at all… or that I know of.

Being on the river with our amazing guide, Abby, was such a peaceful yet definitely bumpy and splashy experience. We went through some class III and IVs. I have to say, I completely got hooked on the class IVs and was begging for more.

What I’ve learned about white water rafting is that when you get into situations like this…


… you get out of them stronger.
