--Finally I Get to Get in on the Fun!

You may remember that Colby had a few river adventures last year, but I never got to go on them.  He promised to take me this year and we had a blast.  After post-poning the trip several weeks in a row due to massive amounts of rain, we hit the river on a gorgeous day and are so glad we waited.

We conoed several miles down the Buffalo and stopped for a little cliff jumping and to see the highest waterfall between the Rockies and the Appalachians. The views along the way were breathtaking.  We had great company (and wished some others of you could have joined) and only swamped the canoe twice.  :)  Swamped, for those of you who aren't as experienced in this type of adventure, {I had no idea what this meant 2 weeks ago} means tipped over. And, no, this wasn't on the rapids--we were pro on those--this was getting back into our canoes in unmoving, 2 feet deep water with 40 people watching. Fab.

Enjoy some pictures.  Unfortunately they don't do the beauty of the place justice.

Umm you are so brave. I seriously don't think I could've done that. I bet it was so fun for you guys to do together though!
