There is an exciting fun summer activity that I was a little reluctant to try, but am glad I did. Whitewater rafting is so much fun. Of course having a guide to help you down the river and through the rapids makes things safer than setting off on your own so we got ourselves a guide. Mike was a fun guide and told us things about the river and the surrounding area. In the Smoky Mountains there are many rivers to enjoy the sport of whitewater rafting. It is something I want to do over and over again!
