R is for...Rafting

So I'm a little late on my posting for R in the A-Z Blogging Challenge because I decided to get out of town for the day and didn't schedule a posting prior to leaving.  Ah well.  Here's today's Oregon topic:


I know there are some great places outside of Oregon to raft, but we actually have quite a few rafting opportunities throughout the state.  I'm partial to white-water rafting on the Deschutes River out of Maupin, but that's just me.  There's also some great white-water rafting on the Rogue River.  If you're looking for something a little tamer in the rafting sphere, check out the Willamette River or the North or South Santiam.  Always be careful of undertoes (big in the Santiam Rivers) and submerged trees.  Essentially, there are multiple locations throughout Oregon where rafting is an option. 

There are tons of companies throughout the state who organize and lead any type of water excursion you want to partake in.  You won't be disappointed in any that you choose.  Along with white-water rafting, you can choose to canoe, kayak, float, or take a jetboat ride down many of the rivers.  For jetboats, I would definitely recommend the Hellgate Jetboat Excursions on the Rogue.  Sit in the front and enjoy the ride :)

That's it for today, dear readers.  Sorry it's so rushed...
