It was the rodeo weekend here in #Sundre. People came from all over #Alberta. On the river there were some wild rides that were lasting more than 8 seconds.
It has been an incredible weekend of white water rafting on the Red Deer River west of Sundre. With all the rain lately the river has risen again. Not too high like a few weeks ago but at a level just below the point where we cut off our trips. Some people got a rafting trip they will never forget.
Few people get lucky enough to catch the water at it’s highest that is runnable. It’s like going skiing and catching the 6 feet of powder. You probably had to travel through some adverse weather but it was exactly that that created the conditions. Don’t let the weather keep you away. You are going to get anyway.
Here is last weeks pictures of the river compared to the previous weekends pictures. It’s come up again but not the raging torrent it had been.
