Lava Falls… this was the biggest, most fun rapid of the whole trip. This rapid truly lived up to the hype. Although we were warned to hold on with both hands, I clearly didn’t listen and ended up with this cool video instead :oP.
But in all seriousness, the guides did an amazing job thru this rapid. Every run is different and rapids change daily depending on water levels, debris runoff from side streams flash flooding. Anything can happen and this rapid scared each of them. It would be scary for us as passengers if they weren’t scared to be honest. Their respect for the power of the river is important.
Props to all our guides for getting everyone thru this rapid safely.
