This article discusses the author's experience of rafting in the New River in West Virginia. The author says that her friends and she wore sweaters or jackets to protect themselves against the early morning chill. She says that they listened quietly as a guide explained how to travel in the rubber raft when they came to the rapids. They practiced their strokes in the still waters near the landing. As they approached their first rapid, they practiced bracing. The author says that the waters of the rivers after a recent rain are brown.
