White Water Rafting Pt.1

Wednesday, January 5, 2011

White Water Rafting is a challenging recreational outdoor activity using an inflatable raft to navigate a river or other bodies of river. This is usually done on white water or different degrees of rough water, in order to thrill raft passengers. The development of this activity as a leisure sport has become popular since the mid-1970s. It is considered an extreme sport, as it can be dangerous.

When my mom first mentioned that we were going to Mindanao (Butuan, in particular) to visit my grandfather (dad's dad), I felt really excited because I haven't been there for 12 years. To my surprise, my mom told me that we were heading to Cagayan de Oro too to do an exciting activity: white water rafting. I didn't have an idea at first so I searched for photos on the internet but still, I didn't know what to expect. I am one lucky girl to have finally experienced white water rafting last Dec. 28, 2010. When that special day finally came and I finally saw the course we were about to take, OH MY GOSH. I couldn't wait. The guides told us there were 24 major rapids on the river and a few minor rapids. ~!@#$%^&*()_+ EXCITEMENT ALL THE WAY.

After 4 amazing hours, the activity sadly came to an end. I have exciting photos of the whole thing but I have to wait for my mom because I used her camera. I also used a waterproof disposable camera so I have to have it developed pa and converted and all so this blog entry is just an introduction! :)

Btw, the photo above is taken by me 
and I used my dslr.
There was a 10-minute break for all to eat crackers
or drink liquids.
That is I think halfway of the whole course.
