Rafting on Six Mile Creek

I’m a little bit late to the game with this as it happened almost a month ago, but oh well here it is. A group of us drove down from Anchorage to Hope, AK on the 4th to give whitewater rafting a try. Six Mile Creek did not disappoint, it is definitely something I would want to do again. Even though most of the 3 rafts were noobs I think everybody did all three canyons including class 4 and 5 rapids. The only thing I regret was not wearing my wool socks. That water was cold! Everything went well, I only half fell out of the boat, but my mates got me back inside the raft.

Over looking the beginning of our float down Six Mile Creek.

Mandatory swim test, the water was very cold

Nice shot of all the boats

This looks fun as hell. Where do I sign up?

Good shot, we are at the top of the picture trying to go upstream to have another go at it
