River play is on the agenda today - whichever option you pick, start with a shallow wet landing on the beach. Choose whitewater with a Deschutes rafting adventure. Class II and III+ rapids come with names like Elevator and Surf City. Rafting guides provide the gear (including optional wetsuits) and expertise; your ship's chef provides the picnic lunch. Stick to dry land and visit Columbia Hills State park on foot or, if weather permits, by skiff. take a dip in a lazy section of the river, and let the sunshine dry you off after a swim. Along the river's edge, listen to the rustle of cottonwoods.
