Rad cliffs we saw on our very silly ride to our one and only "tourist trap" experince, "Underworld Rafting".
Silly and completely unnecessary train to get to the caving.
Damn this is funny! Ryan and Becky make such good tourists don't you think?
Me, a bunch of tourists, a silly outfit, and an inner-tube inside a cave. WTF?
Wow! I was feeling intimidated when I saw this.
Me, gleeful as ever as we descended the exciting class 0 water in a tube. I won't soon forget this experience. I also won't repeat this experience..... :)
