It's day three of Raft Guide School today, which means it's Fantasy Island Day, or Groundhog Day. However you call it, the raft guides spend all day running Nantahala Falls in its various lines.
Guide hopefulls start by running the falls.
Then, they have to negotiate their raft up the stairs at the photo deck.
Veteran NOC instructors then give feedback on each run of the falls.
Finally, it's a group raft haul back to the concrete beach to do it all over!
Thanks to fantastic weather, it's a great March day on the Nanty!
