The Water In Wyoming

Wyoming Humor

I went rafting in Jackson Wyoming last weekend.  What a blast!  I went with my kids, mother, and sister.  We went with a tour group; the Jackson Hole Whitewater/Teton Expeditions Scenic Float Trips group on July 1st at noon.

Why give all the details?  Because two photo companies set up shop on the cliff over the scariest rapids.  You can go to or and see pictures of me!

I’m the fat lady in the blue top and brown pants on the nose of the raft.  The rafting guide called it “Riding Rodeo.”  I called it “Being the hood ornament.”  Only, as my mother said, when we got to the big stuff, the hood ornament broke off.  Into the boat, luckily.  I have “swam” before, but not on this particular trip.

I have some chatty stuff to day about Jackson Wyoming and the trip too and from, but that can wait until tomorrow.



  1. Sounds like fun, I am hunting down your pictures as we speak.

  3. I saw you, Alice, and you look soaking wet! 🙂 I need to find the courage to go on a trip like that, ’cause it looks fun!

  4. I look horrified. It’s because I could see the rocks in the bottom of the river through the trough in the wave. It couldn’t have been more than a few feet deep there.

    As to my family, my son and mother are right behind me. It’s my dd and sister and a stranger at the back.

  8. Okay, I know I’m late, but yes, the open range picture is showing. Love the humor. I found your rafting pictures, or at least one, when you first posted them. I tried to look again now, but it asked me too many questions that I didn’t know. As I said before, thanks for sharing your adventures. These are things that I will probably never get to do, but I love getting live them vicariously.
