On Sunday, G and I headed to Maupin, Oregon to go rafting. We met up with Ann Marie in Portland so we could all drive together.
G’s always happy to pose with two chicks.
We were a little concerned about going rafting because when we left Portland it was cloudy and pretty cool. And as we drove it didn’t get much better.
But once we got over Mt. Hood, it began to get beautiful.
After driving two hours from Portland and three hours from South Jesus, we made it to Maupin.
And we got ready to raft!
It’s been a while since I went rafting and G’s never been so we were excited. These were the rafts:
We actually bought Groupons to go rafting so the trip was something like $30 per person. And it was a 3 hour rafting trip down the Deschutes River.
A lot of it was just floating down the river, but there were a few class 3 rapids and one class 4 rapid. Totally, totally fun. And they even had people along the river taking pictures! So we spent another $30 on five dumb pictures, but it was worth it.
That’s our guide, Will, in the back. He was there to make sure we didn’t die or flip over.
Obviously, G and I were very excited to wave at the cameraman.
We all had to jump in the bottom of the raft when we went into that rapid. The next time we had to jump in the boat G took all the space…jerk.
And no one fell out! I was sure G was going to fall out and no one would be strong enough to get him back in the raft. But he did great and was determined not to fall into the water. Although he did scream like a girl when the water splashed him.
And that was hilarious.
