We had originally planned to go white water rafting, but overnight, the water level on New River increased by about 5 feet, which was a little unexpected. Due to the peanut child and the inexperience of all of us, Keri felt it would be better if we skipped rafting for the day.
Instead we, made a trip to the New River National River visitor’s center and got the kids’ passports stamped and observed the river from above.
It looked pretty powerful, even at a distance.
After milling around the visitor center, and waiting for Jason to finish up some remote work, we all piled into Keri’s car and headed down the lower valley to get a closer look.
