This reminds me of a time I almost blew apart a beauty cedar strip after getting caught up taking pictures. Rapids tend to sneak up on you when you least expect it haha.
Ya-ma-ha-ma! At least it wasn't the typical waterfall sneaking up on you like in the movies!
Yikes! Pictures 4 and 6 look like crushed pop cans - I've never seen a canoe in that condition, ever. I clearly don't have the nerve for rapids (yet).
@Lily, Well I really would not say attempt rapids until you at least take a weekend beginners course some where. If your in Ontario there are plenty available.
