LJ Idol "An Adventure Of 'Yes'": Through The Rapids

The break is approaching, and the froth off to the left is like whipped cream in a blender. You grip the handles on the sides of the raft as you head in, water crashing over the front and splashing your feet. Oh, man—it's amazing! The raft bounces and swerves as you go along, quickly rushing downriver. The guide is working hard behind you, edging the raft left and right around the rocks. Your stomach dips and rises, and spray dashes you from both sides—the best ride ever!

An eagle swoops down through the trees up ahead, as you keep going. Water kicks up over the raft, the sun turning the droplets into liquid diamonds. Finally, you see the right fork coming in from the side as you rejoin the main part of the river.

Wow, that was truly awesome. Epic even. But was it enough?
