Rafting the Tieton River


Welcome again everyone! The following pictures are a compilation of two rafting trips I took on the Tieton River on the east side of the Cascade Mountain Range in Central Washington state. Every September a draw down of Rimrock Lake is started to make room for the next winter's rain and snow accumulation. This turns the river into a non stop white water adventure for miles. No real dangerous rapids but continuous rolling swift water that makes for a lot of enjoyment. 😀

The pictures in this installment were provided by Wet Planet Rafting and taken by a photographer unknown to me. The 2010 shots are with an unknown camera and low res. The 2014 shots were taken with a Canon EOS REBEL T1i. The GIF was created by me, @oldmans, using Imgflip.

In these shots I am in the back right of the raft with the blue helmet.

The guides give you a few commands before you start the trip. So during the run you are kind of working as a team as he shouts out the commands. 😀

Wow! That's impressive. I can see the power of teamwork in the photos.

It works pretty well, especially since in most cases it's a group of people that just met each other.
