Rafting the Klamath River

On the weekend of July 26th & July 27th, just after we got back from our trip to Colorado, Jen and I packed a tent and some gear and headed down past Grants Pass, which is in the very southern part of Oregon, so that we could do some rafting on the Klamath River.  We were camping at Valley of the Rogue State Park, which is a fine state park but kind of an RV-fest because it's right off of I-5.

We were there with some of our really good friends and had a great time camping.  Unfortunately I don't have any pictures from the rafting trip but I can tell you that it was _great_.  We used this place called Arrowhead Adventures and they couldn't have been better.  We had a great guide, Cristina, who made the trip a lot of fun.  It was a pretty intense river, and we did almost flip at one point, but we didn't lose anyone during the trip and for the most part it was just the right amount of excitement.  The trip goes all the way from Upper Klamath Lake in Oregon to Lower Klamath lake in California.

The day after the trip we did a quick geocache before heading back to Portland.
