South Fork of the American River, California (1984)
This was my very first whitewater rafting trip. The trip that started it all. The South Fork of the American River is the most popular whitewater rafting river in California - perfect for first timers. The rapid seen here is "Satan's Cesspool" which is a Class III+ rapid. Yes, I am the one falling out of the raft. My brother Al is the one laughing at me.
