Wow! That was fun!
Went on "The Tradition". The first half was a gentle intro to rafting down the Kicking Horse river -- absolutely stunning scenery, informative guide pointing out interesting features of the Valley and explaining the origin of the name Kicking Horse while keeping us moving -- and occasionally wet!
The second half was where the fun really started with Class III-IV+ rapids. Woohoo! I managed to fall out going through a particularly hairy set of rapids, but that just added to the excitement. I was back in the raft in a snap and on we went!
Wild Water outfitted us very well. Their trips all include full wetsuits including boots and gloves, helmet, fleece, water jacket, and life jacket. I saw other company's rafters on the river as we went and none of them looked as well prepared as us.
The barbeque at the end was delightful -- awesome cookies!
I can't wait to go again next year. Don't miss out -- if you're in the area, go for a ride down the Kicking Horse with the Wild Water folks!
