June 2001 – One day I went rafting. At first it was boring, but soon there were the rapids and then it got better. Then we were told some of the names of the rapids and then we went down a rapid named Rattlesnake. Rattlesnake was not as rough as Surfer’s Alley. Surfer’s Alley was a good rapid and we were lucky we did not flip but I wish sometimes we did. Then my brother steered the raft. He did good. Then we pumped the kayak and I pretended to be a dog. Everyone liked it. But the trip ended. It was fun.
