White water rafting on the Urubamba

Near the end we hit three different sets of class three rapids that definitely were an exciting rush to splahs through. As we took out our rafts at the end of the day, Bram even decided to jump into the river off a protruding 8 foot boulder.
Bram and I were picked up a 9AM and driven 90 minutes to Ollantaytambo for a white water rafting trip. Along the way we picked up 3 travelers from Oklahoma and 3 from Sweden. We rafted down the urubamba River. It was pretty calm for the most part, but at least the scenary was spectacular. The river cut through mountains on either side of us and the clouds hung low covering the peaks of the mountains. Sometimes the clouds seem to reach down almost as low as the valley and devour one whole entire mountain while the one next to it is perfectly exposed.
