-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!
Got my 'oh sh*t' face down to a T #whitewater #rafting #canmore #funtimes #chinookrafting
Got a movie of us surfing, this was a good one we got into the Rapids twice in one go and sure got wet! Check out how high the back end of the boat goes!
