So it was another hot one, with a very scary storm that we skirted around in Utah. We got to a ...
... and walk now after setting off. Our guide, Jeremy, was very nice and we had a blast. By the end we all wished we could have done the rapids (class IV) all over again.
Zip line was fun too. They had a little ropes course that you walked over too. I went with Mr. Aguglia and he bounced a bit, sending me spinning and getting dizzy nearly unable to stand up straight and get across. I put on a great show!
