Those who spend their day-to-day lives appreciating its wonder and talking to people who take on its adventure say whitewater rafting is an activity that can be shifted and shaped to meet just about anyone’s capabilities and desires. 

“We certainly have the handful of people who show up and are surprised that they’re going to get wet,” said Wendy Hart, with a laugh, “which I’m not quite sure how you get far as along as getting here without realizing you’re going to get wet.”
