Great Ride

We did one of those touristy things. We went on the Hellgate Boat Tour. It was a blast! It was a 2 hour, 36 mile trip from Grants Pass to Hellgate Canyon on the Rogue River.
The boats are 40 feet long and 10 feet wide, powered by three 4.3 liter Chevy V6's,
Our boat had 30 people on the trip.
Here we are coming into the very narrow Hellgate Canyon.
We saw some wild life on the ride. 
I got this real good shot of an eagle.
These two boats had the Grants Pass high school senior class on them.
We had a great time on a beautiful day. 
The water was quite shallow in some places.
The boat captain had a lot of fun trying to get us wet. He would spin this huge boat around. Just like we used to do in our own boats back in the day. Next time we're going to take the 5 hour, 75 mile trip. More rapids on that ride and you get lunch with it.

Live Happy and Always Go Big.
