A Big Water AdventureBy: Rachel SwansonHave you ever gone rafting? If you haven’t I will tell you about it. There are six levels of rating river rapids. Level one is like floating on a lake. Level two is a floating with a current. Level three is rapids with rocks. Level four is with big rocks. Level five is with big sharp rocks. Level six is really big sharp rocks that require technical maneuvers to navigate through. All these levels depend on the volume of water in the river.I went rafting with my whole family. My favorite part of the whole rafting trip was the rapids. Why I liked the rapids so much is because it was the most active part of the whole trip. The class of rapids we did are rated as a level three. The rapids were exciting because there were big waves and we had to navigate around big rocks, one of the biggest rocks is called Tombstone.I rafted the Colorado River. The river starts in Colorado’s Rocky Mountains and ends in the Gulf of Mexico. The portion of the river that I rafted with my family starts in Glenwood Canyon and ends in Glenwood Springs.The equipment you need includes a helmet, water shoes, life vest, raft, and an oar. Sometimes you would need a car to get there and pick you up when you’re done. I had a blast rafting.
