Whitewater Rafting on the American River.

Hey guys! I just had to pop in and share some sweet photos from my adventures yesterday.. my dad and my brother and I went whitewater rafting on the American River (middle fork) and had the most amazing time! Definitely a highlight of my year, that's for sure.

I'll let the photos speak for themselves.. our photographer who kayaked the whole river was great!





























It was an epic day, that's for sure! We got lucky and had two guides in our raft (one had guided this river for 5 years but was coming back to take a trip down and see how it'd changed), one from Denmark and one from New Zealand. They were a lot of fun! It was really nice because it was just them and us in our raft, so we got to be adventurous (hence the raft flip, lol)!

The weather was perfect, the scenery was absolutely beautiful, and I had an absolute blast. This was my family's 6th or 7th time whitewater rafting and we all agreed that it was our favorite trip!

have you ever been whitewater rafting before?

  2. Holy moly! That looks so fun and terrifying all at once! My friend just went on a rafting girls' trip and she had a blast, but... I don't know! I think I need to start branching out and becoming more adventurous.

  3. I've actually been rafting on American River with my family and friends! It's been a while since we last went, but we always had a blast.

  4. How freaking fun!!! I've never been, but my mom had a bad experience when she was younger...she was the last boat let out before a huge storm and needless to say an ambulance was a part of the experience...and I have never been allowed to go haha

  5. Oh my gosh, this is extremely fun. White water rafting is one of the sporty adventures that loved by many. This is a challenging recreational outdoor activity but for the past ten years, this has been a family-friendly adventure already. Rafting is absolutely great. These photos shared here are evidences that white water rafting means fantastic and incredible.

  6. Going white water rafting with my family was one of my favorite memories of last summer. It was such a great time, and the instructors were great. I hope my kids loved it as much as I did. Thanks for the post.
