Last summer was sooo hot and dry. Our anniversary was on a Saturday and so we decided to look into a raft trip. We didn't really want to drive several hours, and I saw a tour that allowed for you to take a day trip down the Platte.
The ride there was fun as it was quite hilly and we got several of tummy tickling hills. When we arrived at the place, we were treated to a near place to explore since the meeting place was an old power plant that was right on the river. I can't believe I didn't take a picture of the building. They got us to our drop in site and it looked like things were going well. We took some early pics:
Jack even got right into the water.
You can also see that disks was coming. I was never so happy to see the power plant for pick up. We were exhausted and extremely filthy. We even tried to clean up before getting into the car and this is still what I looked like when I got home.
It was painful and generally unpleasant, but totally unforgettable. However, there are no two other people I would rather have had by my side during such a "dirty" experience.
