"So much fun!"

Our expert driver Greg took us up into the gorge and it was awesome. The kids loved it, especially the 360 degree spins! I’ve paddled the river a few times but it’s great to see it all from a different angle. Thanks to Paul for your recommendation. We’d love to come back and do the longer version.
