In my early 20's I had no idea what whitewater rafting was all about. The only type of water sport I had done in a boat was at summer camp in a canoe on a lake. A friend who I was traveling with suggested we take a whitewater rafting trip. I was a little nervous, but was up for anything. I soon learned that a rafting trip was probably one of the most fun things I had done in my life! Plus, raft guides are pretty cute! After my first exciting, scary, and super fun river rafting experience I decided that this is something that I would love to do again and again and again.
