We enjoyed beautiful weather for our raft excursion, mastered well by Levi as he maneuvered the 4 of us through the Level 1-3 rapids, simultaneously serving as tour guide, describing 'what we're seeing' and helmsman, calling for more power (or less!) as needed.

Levi was a great lead for our white water rafting trip. He was knowledgeable of the river's details, changing conditions during the year, and most fun and safe navigational path along the river. The entire boat had a great time !
