Costa Rica Day 4

The river didn’t freeze after all, and neither did we, as we glided (crashed?) our way down 12 miles of the Sarapiqui River. 20130305-170617.jpg The water was actually quite warm, and we got to sample quite a lot of it as we splashed out way through a series of Class III rapids. Pretty exciting, makes rafting on the Lehigh seem like a bathtub experience.
