Rear view wave crush

Our favorite rafting trip in the state while this section is flowing!! One of the few un-dammed rivers still left in the west.

This is the quintessential Colorado rafting trip. The sweet aroma of choke cherry bushes mixed with the pungent pine and willows will have your senses peaked as you immerse yourself in the grandeur of the Colorado Wilderness.
