A group of about 150 from the Cincinnati Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired, plus some sighted partners and a few guide dogs, took their annual 3-mile rafting trip through the Fort Ancient Valley on the Little Miami River on July 12, 2009.
Seventeen years ago, the Morgan's walk into the Cincinnati Association for the Blind and offered a free canoe trip down the Little Miami river. "They looked at us like we were crazy" said Gary Morgan, but our river rafts are uncapsizable and the Little Miami river is well suited for such an endeavor.
The rest is history!
This year, a group of about 150 from the Cincinnati Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired, plus some sighted partners and a few guide dogs, took their annual 3-mile rafting trip through the Fort Ancient Valley on the Little Miami River on July 12, 2009.
Two guide dogs, Piccatta, a yellow lab, and Jenna, a German shepherd, wait as their owners get instructions for the rafting trip on the Little Miami River.
After the trip, everyone gathered at the Riverside Park Picnic Area to sing Amazing Grace, picnic and play games.
Check out the photos and a video from this memorable trip using the links below. We look forward to doing it all over again next year.
Love the rivers
Our heritage is based on a profound love of our rivers. The founders had it in their blood and it is here where we like to cast light on the great outdoor experience.
