Colorado 2002 Expedition

Colorado River Raft Trip

Who?

Colorado River Runs, Inc, known for safety, quality of equipment, and skill (in business since 1973), will lead us on this trip down the Colorado River.

What?

...will we do? We will leave our campground around 7:30 AM to travel by raft through narrow gorges, broad flood plains opening to display breathtaking vistas of high mountains. We will travel from tranquil backwaters to rapids in a celebration of nature with some of the most spectacular scenery in the state.

When?

Where?

We will begin at Ranch Del Rio, about an hour drive from our campsite.

Why?

Our legs will be ready for a rest from hiking and biking and it will be a great community gathering on our last full day at the campground.

What to bring?

  1. Bathing suit and T-shirt or quick drying clothes.
  2. Brimmed had and wind breaker.
  3. Shoes are required; tennis shoes preferred.
  4. Wet suit boots ($2) or wet suits with boots ($8) are available for rent.

    In case you're wondering

    It is true that very dry conditions exist in Colorado this year. The graph below shows the daily and median historic streamflow in the Colorado River near the stretch on which we plan to travel. We plan to make our reservations now to guarantee that we can go on a trip. We will reevaluate the river conditions carefully in early August. If the river runs dry, we will cancel the trip and issue refunds.
