Rafting the Lower New River

Well today Noelle and I got in some real adventure, whitewater rafting on the New River in West Virginia. We woke up in our tent at the ACE Adventure Center and signed in for our trip at 7:30. We were on the river by about 9:30. Right off the bat we hit some small rapids, just a warm up for what was to come. The great thing about the trip is the mixture of whitewater and a few flatwater sections that make for some good swimming.

By 1:30 we had passed under the New River Gorge Bridge and our trip was sadly over. We had a blast though, and plan on returning in the fall for a trip on the Gauley.
