A Visit to the US National Whitewater Center

September 16th, 2006 by Scott McFarlane

Today, we took the family out to check out the new US National Whitewater Center. This is a huge facility just a few miles down I-85 from Charlotte. It’s a man-made park for whitewater rafting and kayaking. It also has a climbing center, and biking and hiking trails. Below are some pictures I took today.

Also, check out this AVI (4MB) video of a kayaker as he struggles to stay upright after shooting through a channel.

Later in the afternoon we drove around the Dilworth neighborhood near uptown Charlotte, and then relaxed and watched the kids play at Latta Park.
