So after we finished rump-bumping we pulled our canoes into
the water and headed down stream. We saw lots of wildlife like moose and
even bald eagles.
Later the slow stream transitioned into rapids, getting more
intense until we arrived at the "horse race", the most intense part of the
rapids. We stopped and landed our canoes on shore before-hand to see what we
were heading for and to get any tips as to the best way to make it down without flipping.
The rapids started with a small waterfall with a large rock
in the middle. After going down that you needed to quickly pull right to
avoid crashing into the rock wall ahead. That was the hardest part but there
were more obstacles and rocks ahead.
Three out of the five canoes flipped. Some of the scouts who
flipped lost their stuff in the stream or got it wet. After everyone flipped
their canoes back upright we headed further downstream. This was
difficult but a blast!
