A couple days ago my friend Katrina took me white water kayaking for the first time! We met up in the morning and went over the simple safety rules of being on the water while she suited me up in her spare dry-suit and gear. The river was fairly mellow but I still had an awesome time through some of the bigger rapids! Definitely something I could see myself getting into. The only downside to the day was the stench coming off the shore from all of the dead fish that have finished spawning and have washed up on the banks of the river.
