Tubing down the rapids


Our tubing trip down the Rio Negro River was a thrill-packed adventure, as I hope you can appreciate somewhat by today's photos and the photos from the last two days.  

The river flowed quickly, with twists, turns, and drops in elevation, as you can see in the photos today and during the past few days.  

In the second photo today, a blue helmet on the head of a fellow floater is barely visible in the left side of the photo, which shows turbulence of the river.   

I took these photos and the ones I posted during the last few days while floating down the river on a tube, using a waterproof camera.  Please excuse and tolerate the quality of the photos, as I was obviously moving and bouncing at the time, and water was on the lens.

It's precisely the quality of the photos that gives us a sense of the wild ride. I'm thinking I'd be covered in bruises at the end of this day but soooo happy.

I just can't believe you did all this in one day. If you used the underwater camera here, what did you do with the other camera to protect it? Or, did you only take the underwater camera on this big adventure.

That looks both fun and scary. Definitely exciting! And no wonder you needed helmets — those rocks can cause serious injuries.

Wow! What a ride that must have been.

Sharon,
I took two cameras. They have lockers for people to use, so I put my other camera in the locker, along with my dry clothes, while I went on the horseback ride and tubing trip.
