We Love Rafting!
We took a father-daughter trip on Amtrak from Indianapolis - Chicago -Truckee. We wanted another short get-away to our top vacation spot. While there, we hooked up with I.R.I.E, a whitewater rafting outfit for an afternoon floating down the Truckee River. Parts were lazy and contemplative, while other sections are rated Class 2 and Class 3, meaning some exciting moments during our trip.
No trip is complete without someone flipping out of the raft and Tod managed to do this late in the trip. Sorry, no photos!
