The Durance – The Raboux

I paddled the Durance in the French Alps a couple of years ago, and we were hoping to do it again last weekend, but sadly the rapid called the Raboux was just a bit too much for paddling an open boat down.  The photos don’t do justice to the river wide hole with really steep angles that didn’t really have a line.  It would have been carnage and would probably have broken boats. Next time!
