White water rafters get a bath on Lunch Counter Rapid, Snake River, Wyoming
A commercial rafting trip blasts through the large standing wave on Lunch Counter Rapid in the Alpine Canyon section of the Snake River, west of Jackson Hole, Wyoming (USA). Rafting, kayaking and surfing is tremendously popular in this section of the river and boats often have to line up and wait their turn to go through the larger rapids on the river. The river is a tail-water from Jackson Lake (Reservoir). Shortly downstream of this site, the river flows into Palisades Reservoir, further modifying the hydrograph, morphology, chemistry and ecology of the system.
