The rafters had to get out and walk a well-marked 1/4-mile trail around one section of extremely shallow water that the guides were able to navigate without the weight of other passengers.  The duckies, however, were able to navigate nearly 9 miles of river from beginning to end.  At the end of the day, everyone was very satisfied with our trip.

After nice warm showers at the NOC Nolichucky River outpost, we took another 3-hour drive to the NOC Nantahala River outpost to spend the night at a location closer to our planned activity for Friday.  We arrived just before midnight and well after the check-in office had closed, but they had left instructions for us taped to the front door and we had no trouble locating our campsite and getting settled in for the night.  Once again, our experience with NOC was excellent in every respect.

Mr. Davis seems to be glad that the guide is driving. Wheeee!!!!
OHhhh ... that water is cold. Somehow Alex managed to stay in the boat and avoid what seemed almost certain to be a complete dunking.
Philip looking very confident of his ability as he floats in calm water. "Tent City" at the Nolichucky Outdoor Center outpost where we spent the night after our rafting excursion.
Gabe, guide, and Scoutmaster Meek ride through a rapid and make it look easy.
Hey, man ... aren't you supposed to let the other guy get out of the way instead of running him over??? There was certainly no shortage of rapids or obstacles in this section of the river.
