Today’s prompt is “river.” My favorite state, Wisconsin, has some challenging rivers for those who love to indulge in canoeing, rafting or kayaking. I never tried kayaking (would my hips really fit in that thing?) but the canoeing was sublime, and the rafting was wild! I was never very athletic–an understatement–but the rivers of Wisconsin have provided some great memories.
