Rafting On The Tuichi River, Day 1   1 comment

Some of the recent posting are a little out of order.
This posting follows “Preparing To Raft Down The Tuichi River In Madidi National Park.” 
BoliviaBalsa wood rafting was one of the things for which we had been waiting.
Here I’m in front of Matt who is paddling while I’m taking photos.
I also had a paddle, but stayed busy taking the trip photos.

Behind us is Ty with Pedro’s uncle.

BoliviaTy is working hard to  overtake us . . .

Bolivia. . . and does.

On The Road In Madidi-54-72.jpgThe scenery was amazing, or should I say “Amazoning.”

and select a camp site and start setting up the tents.

The river is a little higher because of the recent overnight rains,
reducing some of the rapids.

BoliviaI usually had to wipe my camera lens after each rapids.

BoliviaThis is where we would spend our first night on the river.

BoliviaTom and I shared one of the tents.

BoliviaUncle also set up a lean-to tent.

  1. Such fun! You are bringing back memories of crossing the Rio Grande in two car hoods welded together by the Mexicans.
