"I've been many glorious places
in the world and believe the scenery on our canoe ride today
stacks up with or exceeds the beauty of them all - beyond
beautiful - spectacular!"
Petoluna - California
"Absolutely fantastic afternoon
kayaking. Glad we waited until here to go kayaking - the scenery
up the gorge was breathtaking and serene. We laughed all the
way - especially coming down the 'rapids'. Thanks for an amazing
afternoon followed by wonderful coffee."
