Gauley and New River, West Virginia

Sorry again no photos as it was a long time ago about 1995.  We went with some of Arden’s friends from work for a day excursion.  It was awesome.  I think it was both the New and Gauley as I think one went into the other.  A few photos that are not mine – I pulled them off the web

The Gauley River in West Virginia is one of the top ranked rivers in the world. Wow it was awesome with drop offs and a lot of white water.  Its technical rapids, inaccessibility and scenic quality contribute to its world class designation. Dropping more than 650 feet in 24 miles, the Gauley River features over 100 rapids. Two distinct 12-mile sections offer their own personality and flair.

This is truly a world class rafting experience.  We were up and back in a day from Baltimore not bad and great fun

Summer water flows on the Gauley River allow another dimension in rafting and a very different perspective of this wild river. Intermediate to advanced rafters will delight in the challenges of this trip highlighted by cool, crisp water and clean mountain air. The Gauley River offers truly exceptional rafting opportunities.
