Join Norcal Rafters as we enjoy the start of some great rafting weather and take on the entire South Fork of The American River starting at Chili Bar and ending at Salmon Falls Bridge. This is a 21 mile adventure, running such rapids as Meat Grinder, Trouble Maker and Hospital Bar! WhiteWater Photography will also be at Troublemaker, Satans Cesspool, and Hospital Bar in order to accurately catch your experience "frame by frame" so you can take your trip home with you.http://photos1.meetupstatic.com/photos/event/3/3/6/a/event_145573162.jpeg
Once the run is complete, we'll carpool back to WhiteWater Photography in Coloma and all of us will have a chance to view pics from TroubleMaker, Satans Cesspool, and Hospital Bar so you'll have record of your fantastic experienc
