Our legendary guides are remaining calm and relaxe Our legendary guides are remaining calm and relaxed during the wait for rafting. 
They are using their time wisely by digging deep and concentrating hard on which stories they'll tell first when our boats hit the water again! 
Ha, they might even add a joke! #anythingsispossible

ЗНАКОМЬТЕСЬ, Я и МОЁ МУЖСКОЕ ТРИО 👨‍👩‍👦‍👦
⠀
Вчера ночью получили фотографии с нашего экстрима. Вот такие мы смелые ребята за 5 минут до рафтинга. Я подчёркиваю ДО РАФТИНГА!!!🙈
⠀
И раз уж мы все вместе, это хороший повод познакомить с каждым:
⠀
Антон:
Хозяин! Весь семейный финансовый учёт держится исключительно на нём, не смотря на то, что Худо бедно учился в школе. Харизматичный и очень Холёный мужчина, умеет Хватать удачу за Хвост😉
⠀
Максим:
Хорошо сложён, точно знает чего от жизни Хочет, защитник всех малоХольных: муХи не обидит (в прямом смысле поймает и выпустит её за дверь), знает как паХнет пороХ в пороХовницах💥
⠀
Алексей:
Совсем ешё малюсенький Хлопчик, но сладкий и с очень Хорошим аппетитом. Немножко "Хулиган", согласно возрасту, чего мы все ему прощаем за доброе Храброе сердце и Характер с душой❤
⠀
Оксана:
Хорошенькая, Хрупкая особа. Живёт по принципу "Хочу и Хрен знает как желаемое сделать". Прекрасно научилась, когда надо, Хлопать ресницами и взлетать. Не дружит с Химией со школьных лет. Холодна к мясу и саХару.
⠀
Ну, и последнее, что нас объединяет: 
Мы все, наХоХлившись от *Холода*🤪 в Канаде Вам дружно шлём Хорошие приветы!
⠀
Эстафету приняли от ivolgaalisa и отработали "Х" по полной всей семьёй 🙌
⠀
Ну, Хто тут из нас получился самый Хот?🔥
⠀
Хотите поучаствовать во флешмобе, ставьте ссылку на меня и пишите "Хочу букву"!
⠀
А Вы как бы охарактеризовали себя на букву "Х"??? Уверена, сейчас все будут ХОРОШИМИ!!👌😂❤

Any other year, May long is our season-opening weekend. We're looking forward to white water rafting again when it's ok to do so, but we know it's not just yet... Of course we'll let you know when we know more!

-Kananaskis River Rafting- For me, the River Rafti -Kananaskis River Rafting-
For me, the River Rafting was the best experience of the whole Banff trip, because I don't know how to swim, and I vouched to sit right in the front, when they asked. It was a truely awesome feeling, being right in the face of the wild and cold water!
