Been a while since you've stood eye-to-eye with a raging force of nature? No, we don't mean your girlfriend on Valentine's Day. But bring her along to Charlemont and show her something truly scary: Class IV rapids raging on the Deerfield River, for example. After that, you guys might need a mellow float down the calm part of the water to chill out and take in the scenery.
Zoar Outdoor, 7 Main St., Charlemont (800-532-7483). Starts at $82.
