Passage

My First White-Water Rafting Trip


[1] White-water rafting has been a favorite pastime of mine for several years. [2] I have drifted down many challenging North American rivers, including the Snake, the Green, and the Salmon, and there are many other rivers in America as well that I have not rafted. [3] I have spent some of my best moments in dangerous rapids, yet nothing has matched the thrill I experienced facing my first, rapids, on the Deschutes River.

[4] My father and me spent the morning floating down a calm stretch of the Deschutes in his wooden McKenzie river boat.

[5}This trip being the wooden boat's first time down rapids, as well as mine. While I enjoyed the peacefulness, I was eager for the thrill yet to come.

[6] Roaring, I was in the boat approaching Whitehorse Rapids. I felt much like a novice skier peering down my first steep slope: I was scared, but even more exhilarated.
