A Day In Maupin OR - Part 1 - Rafting the Deschutes River

oldmansPosted for Everyone to comment on, 2 years ago2 min read
These are from a little trip to Maupin OR in August of 2013 to do some rafting and camping. A friend of mine at the time had been doing a big remodel on an old ranch in the area. Near the end of the job he treated his employees and friends to a little rafting and a campout on the ranch property. In the following images I am the guy in the neon green/yellow shirt. :)

The pictures in this installment were provided by River Drifters Rafting and taken by a photographer unknown to me. They were taken with a Canon EOS 20D and 30D. The GIFs were created by me, @oldmans, using Imgflip.

"Who wants to ride point?" the guide asked. "It will be fun" she said.

As she deftly steered us into the hole and the churning white water ahead...

The volunteer point man was lost to a wall of water.

Only his feet remained to be seen.

If you zoom in close to the guide's face you will see a sly smile that seems to say "Got another one".

Here is a gif of the same sequence of photos.
