Rafting the Tieton River

in hive-113634 •  9 months ago 
Welcome again everyone! The following pictures are a compilation of two rafting trips I took on the Tieton River on the east side of the Cascade Mountain Range in Central Washington state. Every September a draw down of Rimrock Lake is started to make room for the next winter's rain and snow accumulation. This turns the river into a non stop white water adventure for miles. No real dangerous rapids but continuous rolling swift water that makes for a lot of enjoyment. 😀

The pictures in this installment were provided by Wet Planet Rafting and taken by a photographer unknown to me. The 2010 shots are with an unknown camera and low res. The 2014 shots were taken with a Canon EOS REBEL T1i. The GIF was created by me, @oldmans, using Imgflip.


In these shots I am in the back right of the raft with the blue helmet.

A celeration of a job well done. 😀


A much sunnier day this time around. I'm the guy with the gray beard in these shots.

Hope you enjoyed the little trip and thanks for looking!
