Met up with some friends for a great rafting trip down the White Salmon. We went with Wet Planet and they were awesome. They gave us everything we needed and drove us up to the river. All you really need to bring is a bathing suit. I particularity enjoyed passing the public launch site that was bustling with other companies and continuing up the road 2 miles to a private launch site. Our main guide talked to us under the shade of the forest along the river (which was well appreciated on a 90 degree day) about safety and what to do in case you fell in. After the group split up into our individual rafts the excitement began. We were well trained in a calm pool before we went into the first rapid: "Triple Drop" our first class IV rapid. That was followed by more fun rapids that I sadly don't remember the names to, but do remember how awesome they were. We got out and walked around a big waterfall and then jumped off a cliff back into the river, it was super fun! After about an hour of fun, we passed the launch site that we passed on the road where other companies were putting in (I wonder if they knew what they missed)! The rest of the trip was super fun, and I highly recommend the last falls (some folks walked around) where you drop over the edge of the falls to end up totally submerged! It's crazy and totally a blast!
We got done with our trip around lunch time and headed to town for good food and beer. What a great visit! I highly recommend rafting the White Salmon (particularly Wet Planet) and visiting the Columbia Gorge what a great time!
