The rafting trip-- said to be "This is the Beast of the East, the most renowned whitewater in West Virginia, always in the top 3 in the nation, consistently in the top 5 in the WORLD. The Upper Gauley River drops over 335 feet in less than 13 miles. It's the essence of big-water rafting excitement creating an intense whitewater experience not recommended for the timid or inexperienced. The Upper Gauley River is continuous, big volume, technical, gut-wrenching whitewater from start to finish. Prior rafting experience and the ability to swim are recommended. "

Second time rafting this river (Gauley), first time on the "New River". [

I went with my Dad, Step-mom, aunt, cousin and brother.
