McKenzie River Run – June 28, 2015

mckenzie river run

I just love saying ‘yes’ to adventures, don’t you?

This past Sunday, I said yes to a friend-guided rafting run down the McKenzie River, east of Eugene, Oregon. We packed a cooler bag full of beer, sandwiches, and snacks, rented life vests (or PFDs), and hopped in.

It’s my third river run ever (having done Colorado’s Arkansas River in 2006 and Costa Rica’s Pacuare in 2012) and another solid reminder that this is, in fact, A Thing I Love to Do.

It’s been just over 24 hours since I got off that river and already, I want to know — how soon can I do that again?
