This is the question I get asked most in a regular season. This year it seems as if I hear this question at least twice a day. This years rains have been relentless. Each day and some times for days on end we have had heavy rains.
I remember growing up as an outdoor kid. I was always outside doing something. Most of time it was hiking, camping, biking, climbing, fishing, etc. and I never gave the weather much thought. I figured I could not control it so, I just have to accept it and move on, in fact some of my greatest memories of outdoor activities were in the rain. A lot of people describe the rain as bad weather but I describe the rain as ...rain. If I want to get outside and play then that is what I do and I accept the weather whatever it may bring. Some of the best runs and bikes and fishing have been in the rain.
Can you go rafting in the rain? Absolutely! Rafting in the rain is fantastic. The rain feeds the river and creates larger flows than a normal rating day. The rapids are bigger and the ride is a little wilder. This combination makes for a great ride down the river and at no extra cost to the customer, we never charge for the added water. Everybody loves to raft when the sun is shining and sky is blue and the temperature is in the 80s and 90s but don't miss out on those days that everybody else calls "bad weather" I say "Carpe Diem" (Seize the Day) and don't let go until, either the day has given all it has or you have.
