Come Wander
Whitewater Paddling the Madawaska

“It’s game time!” With that one phrase, yelled over the sounds of rippling whitewater ahead, blogger Will Tang, of Going Awesome Places, looked back at his partner and rushed down the rapids, their canoe jostling around the mighty river. A first-timer to whitewater canoeing, Will describes his adventure in paddling at Madawaska Kanu Centre (MKC) in this blog post, where he not only walked away with a new skill, but an awesome story of letting go and trusting yourself despite impeding rapids.
