But now, I must continue where I left off...
So we had our little "barge" of tubes just floating gently down the river...probably going no faster than 2 miles an hour. In fact, at some points it barely felt like we were moving at all, it was so slow. So relaxing. But randomly there would be spurts of "rapids" that sent our tubes flying (about 10-15 miles an hour.) And even though the water wasn't deep, there would be areas in those rapids that huge rocks were protruding above the water...so, whenever we saw one, we would just try to paddle and maneuver our tubes around them.

Let's just say, I sobered up pretty darn quick after that!
So yeah, I will never forget that moment for the rest of my life, as I really doubt any of my guy friends, that were on that trip, will be able to look at
Also, if you happen to be in Arizona, and find yourself on the salt river tubing excursion, and you come across these sunglasses, I would greatly appreciate it if you would send them my way! :)
