Whitewater rafting is my
favorite summer mountain sport. My favorite rivers are the Lower Gauley in West Virginia
and the Upper Youghegeny in Maryland. I don' t have any pictures of those trips because I
was too busy paddling.
Here I am on a trip that I sponsored for the faculty of the veterinary school at
Auburn University. This trip was on the Ocoee River in Tennessee.
This is a great shot as we
were going through a class VI rapid on the Chatooga River that separates Georgia and South
This picture of me on a trip down the Cheat
River in West Virginia is about 12 miles from where I used to live.
This is a picture from a trip
down the New River.
I took my kids when they were younger. The upper New is a great trip for kids. It is a
nice drift trip with a few class II and class III rapids. The lower New is much more
challenging. Both sections of the river are very scenic.
