    One of my favorite things to do in West Virginia is go white water rafting! There's nothing like it. I took my first trip when I was 16 and have gone down the New River 9 times.
    The best rafting experience in the area has always been on the Gauley River. The start of the rafting trip is at the Summersville Dam. During the fall the Army Corps of Engineers opens up the large tubes and lets the water fly! The water being released out of damn is around 2,500 cubic feet per second on each release date.

    I remember the first time my grandfather took me to the dam, I'll never forget the ground rumbling under the force of the water or the feel of the mist in the air.
