This video is something to behold. Having been a river rat in my younger days, I somehow seemed to have raised another river rat. This youtube video is not my work, but I felt that I needed to share - for many reasons. Just look at our beautiful Idaho. The video shows footage from both the north fork and south fork of the Payette river where Cascade Raft and Kayak offer excursions every summer. This year, my son Avery, will be guiding the south fork - a big step up for him. There is footage of Big Falls rapid which is a class IV. Raftss have to portage around this and I have such fond memories of doing just that. I feel so fortunate to have these opportunities for my children to find themselves, be themselves and to carve out a life doing what makes them happy!
