Whitewater rafting on the Ocoee

A little over a year ago, I had the chance to cross whitewater rafting off my bucket list. With a carload of friends and family, we ventured to middle Tennessee and rented a cabin for the weekend.

There had been a lot of rain that season so the river was deeper and running much faster than usual. Rapids that were normally class III's and IV's were now V's and VI's. At one point, I was literally sucked out of the raft as we went through Broken Nose rapids. Luckily, I was able to grab a friend's hand and then hang on to the side of the raft until we got to shallow water and I could scramble back in. Definitely an adrenaline rush and I was left with only one small scrape on my ankle.

The experience was incredible. It was exhilarating and scary fun with just enough slower moments sprinkled in to catch your breath and take in the beautiful views of the river.
