The River Rafting Adventurers start to gather
Kathy and Cathy plus Angela, Eileen and Barry. Oh what a group!
Kim and Joni waiting for Water Sports III to begin
Mike and Amy...what an unlikely duo they make. Mike is the father of Amy's grandchildren Dillon and Aleni. You've gotta like him for that alone. But he has other redeeming qualities too!
Kim is waiting for the last minute to start donning all the rafting gear. Good thinking!
Chris and Theresa, two time participants know what's coming and seem to be looking forward to it.
The gang is all ready and just waiting for their indoctrination session where officials from Pocono Whitewater explain the difference between water and rocks.
Raft-mates - Theresa, Mary Lou (who?), Ryan, Chris and Kevin the bear.
Barry - the river rat King!
Eager participants at indoctrination...
Riding the short bus
A view from the trail leading down to the river
Grab a boat, dip your tootsies into the icy creek water, trudge through the Viaduct and march to the river time....
Rich - Mr. Pepsodent smile hisownself!
What's in the bucket Rich?
Checklist!!! Paddles, Raft, Buckets for bailing, Bucket for lunch, Life Vests, Water. Yep, time to go...
Paul, Kathy, Tom, Carl, Jocelyn and Mai Ling just before they were shoved into the rapids.
The excitement begins
Chris and Ryan in the back of the boat...just like they rode the bus.
Floating down the Lehigh Gorge
Paul, Carl, Jocelyn fixing her hair, Kathy and two unwilling hostages - Tommy and Mai Ling
Uh, I think the paddle is supposed to be IN the water Jocelyn. How much does feeling the water help, Mai Ling?
Not a sad face in the group!
Playing follow the leader on a somewhat cool late summer day was just thrilling without the heat and humidity
Swirling water, surrounding mountainous terrain, a speck of sunshine through the clouds...just beautiful!
Row, row, row that boat!
Three drowned rats - Mary Lou, Chris, and Ryan. Why is Mary Lou the only one smiling?
Lunch break with Barry and Eileen. Of course I caught Eileen with her mouth full. I waited.
Kathy - here comes CONFIDENCE! She tamed the river too!
Three tired rowers...Angela, Dave and Wendy. The reason they're so tired is that Rich, Amy and Mike wouldn't row.
