10:30 a.m. – 4 p.m. - Mukwah Rafting: “Full Jaunty” half-day white-water rafting trip
Alan, our guide, hollers “Forward 3!” and nine paddles cut through the water three times. We're heading into Nationals, a long run of Class 3 rapids that is Alan's favourite. “More rapids!” Emi screams joyfully from the front of the raft. My daughters Emi, 6, and Miya, 8 grin from ear to ear as they're bounced in the air and splashed.
You'd think they've done this before, but it's their first time white-water rafting. They've had a couple hours to ease into the bigger stuff and are loving every second. Earlier, Miya and I did some cliff jumping. It's been an amazing day of firsts that we will never forget!
