The Ocoee whitewater Visitor’s center has 30 minute visitor’s parking and if you hustle you can see quite a bit in 30 minutes.
First the bridge lured me across
Then the rafts came floating down the river. It looked pretty calm until
they got right at that flashing light!
That’s when they got their monies worth!
Their guide spotted me and told them to wave to all the PancakeNinja readers.
This section is great, it’s built for photographers, the walkway is actually lower than the river water level so it gives a really good perspective.
It’s man-made so there are strategically placed rocks to keep things exciting.
Ok, watch this raft,
make note of how many heads are in the raft.
5 and a guide right?
Uh, by the time I got to the other side of the bridge there were only two left in the raft and it was hung up on a rock. They did get unstuck and they picked up the rides that fell out and floated down stream.
The whole guide thing looks like a lot of work.
And that’s the end of my 30 minute rafting adventure where I didn’t even get wet at all!
