Nantahala River Rafting

A lot of water makes it way through Western North Carolina.  The Nantahala River is rafting central.  A dozen or so outfitters are located up and down the river and cater the thousands of river rats.  The launch site for most of the outfitters is just above Pattons Run overlook.  I stopped at the overlook to take a picture of the mist that hovered just above the water.  My camera wasn't catching the effect as well as I had hoped. While I was making other plans, rafters started floating by.  It no time at all it was a steady procession of all manner of floating craft.  Here's the video.
