White water rafting!!!August 8, 2017 in the United States
We had a blast for our 8 mile run down the Snake River! Saw some bald eagles, marmots, osprey and a mink. Our guide, Tom was amazing! Will and Sammy were by far the wettest with Gordie not far behind. His blue and green hair streamed ink down his face as we went through Lunch Table rapids. The company takes pictures there so let's hope for a good one! What an awesome morning! Time for pizza!
Some questions we answered on our trip:
1) What is the deepest canyon in the United States?
Will: Hells Canyon @ 7,993ft deep (border between ID, OR & WA))
2) Where does a drop of water in the Snake River in Jackson Hole end up?
Sammy (age 9):She knew the ENTIRE water cycle! We learned a lot!
To answer the question we learned that: 2% ends up in the Pacific Ocean, 97% ends up on the fields of Idaho for irrigation, 1% ends up on Will!
3) What crop does the Snake River irrigate?
Angus: Barley! aka: The currency on the river amongst the guides for helping each other out.Read more
