Jackson Hole Scenic Rafting

Flying down a river over rough rapids is exciting enough to get anyone's blood pumping. The extreme speed--coupled with the knowledge that the only thing separating the adventurer's body from the mountain water is a rubber raft--will get any risk-taker off the shore. For most people though, extreme river rafting seems a bit daunting. Thankfully, there are plenty of options for scenic rafting, which leaves you invigorated without giving you such an intense rush.Bald eagle in tree seen during scenic float trip in Jackson Hole (photo by Bill Willcox)
