Ocoee Rafting In Tennessee

For Labor Day weekend we took students on the annual Florida Navigators rafting trip in Ocoee Tennessee which is about 7 hrs from Gainesville. It was so much fun we camped for two nights and rafted in between. The Ocoee River plunges 269ft across 5 miles. It is the same river than olympian kayakers competed in for the '96 summer olympics in Atlanta. It had up to class 5 rapids. It was a little intimidating with that kind of background but so much fun. I cannot wait until next fall to do it again. I am sorry that none of the actual rafting could be captured. So our campsite will have to do.
