Whitewater Rafting in Maine

2 weekends ago my husband Donald and I took 2 of our Grandkids North to Jackman ME for the first time.


We had always talked about "someday" going Whitewater Rafting .

Well someday finally happened :>)

We drove 6.5 hrs. to get there, but it was well worth it

Jackman is a VERY small town about 1 hr.North of Skowhegan  It`s filled with small country stores and surrounded by Mountains and LOTS of small town hospitality

We had made reservations at the Mountain View Resort which is a BEAUTIFUL Lodge http://www.innseason.com/isr/RD_R_Mountainview.aspx part of the inn season resort properties

We had a Gorgeous View of the mountains just behind the lodge and inside the Lodge was just as pretty

After a Peaceful nights sleep, bright and early Sunday morning we met up with the Bus from the Windfall Rafting Company http://windfallrafting.com/ which took us to the Kennebec River Dam where our rafting trip started.

After a smooth raft ride down the river for a bit, we started hitting the rapids !  Class 2 , 3, and then the mighty 4 http://windfallrafting.com/

Grandpa and I had as much fun and excitement as the Grandkids did !  We definitely wished we had done this sooner but very glad we got to share this with the kids.
