Whitewater Rafting on the Ottawa River
This photos were taken during a whtewater rafting trip on the Ottawa River in Ontario Canada. June, 2009.
Start of the rapids. Looks easy.
First wave, no problem.
Second wave. This looks a bit more interesting.
Oops! Those are my feet going over the side.
At least I came up close to the raft.
Not much help from my raft mates.
Still not much help from my raft mates.
Successfully completed the first rapids. Only 5 or six more to go.
This is what the rapids look like from shore.
No rafting trip would be complete if there weren't some big rock for everyone to jump off of. This is me taking the leap. It is farther down that it looks.
This is what you look like from the top, after you jump in.
Approaching another set of rapids.
Where'd the raft go?
Oh, there it is. Look closely. See the small bit of blue. That's the raft. The small spot of white behind it is our guide's helmet.
Another set of rapids successfully run.
