Rafting Down the Hooch

In honor of the summer season I am posting this gallery shot last year for the Gwinnett Daily Post of Up the River Outfitters on the Chattahoochee River in Buford. Up the River provides tubing, canoe and kayak rentals for people wanting to get on the water and enjoy the river from a different viewpoint.
