Wildwater, Ltd. supplied everything we needed, including wetsuits. We really lucked out on the weather because the day was sunny and warm, but the water temperature was still pretty cold and the wetsuits made the trip that much more comfortable --- especially for those who left the rafts at various times to take unplanned swims!
Section IV of the river consisted of Class III and Class IV rapids in close succession. The entire trip was one set of rapids after another. The outfitter provided lunch as part of the package and it was surprisingly good. When we got back to the Wildwater outpost after our float, there were showers with plenty of hot water and everyone was able to clean up.

|And now we're on our way!||Whatever you, just maintain your balance ...|
|Excuse me, but does anyone notice that big rock just ahead? Who's steering this thing?||Experienced guides know when it's time to leave the boat!|
