Terrace, River Rafting

After we finished our rafting rodeo, and everyone was once again soaked to the bone but having a truly grand time! We had a bit of a tight spot to raft through which took us rather close to some rocks, but we paddled our hardest and our guide took us through without so much as a pebble even hitting the raft! It was an easy rest of the way with some easier rapids and white water. Nothing like the spot we went through earlier that got us completely drenched and was a wild ride! During this trip we saw two Bald Eagles and unfourtunetly no other wildlife. Our guide, Hatha, informed us though that usually there is a large diversity to the animals seen. The water was a gorgeous jade colour, and as I said before a perfect British Columbian summer day!
We got to our stop and pulled the rafts out and carried the gear back up to the truck. Once there we got back into nice dry and sun warmed clothes and helped with some of the packing up! Then, Guido, our driver had set us up a great meal! Taco's with veggies and cheeses and meats! I ate two and it was a great meal after a great float! We mingled and chatted with everyone after and heard about some great stories and had a few laughs. Then we all piled on the bus and headed back home!
I learned some great stuff on this adventure! If you'd like to experience the awesomeness of a day on some white water you can go to www.skeenavalleyexpeditions.com and find out more about this company and contact. Or you can contact the New Hazelton or Terrace visitor centres and gather information from there! If there is one thing in your life you do, let it be floating down one of British Columbia's gorgeous rivers because it is so worth it!
