Continuing our journey downstream the Rogue River.
Now we are rafting!
Fairly quickly we pass under Robertson Bridge.
In fact there are two bridges; the old metal one and the modern concrete one.
But way on top of the metal bridge is an osprey’s nest.
The river, flowing at 2,800 cubic feet per second we are told, flows into the gorge.
Behind us are the two kayaks. The one on the left is permanently manned by Christian, one of the guides, and the other one is available for anyone who wants to have a go.
Deeper into the gorge we go.
It is wild country.
We pass an old pump that some years ago was displaced by a flooding Rogue!
And as the gorge narrows the flow of the river becomes more agitated and the start of the white-water section beckons.
The final post tomorrow!
