Hi - We are taking our first trip to CO this summer (9 & 13 yr old kids). We are flying into Denver and driving through Vail, then down through Leadville to Pagosa Springs. We have a condo there for a week and will do mtn bking, springs, day trip to Durango fo the train. We'll leave, by driving through Col Springs for a couple of days. My question, is where to WhiteWater raft, as we want it exciting and fun. I hear the Arkansas is best, but first of July it may be too slow b/c of low water. It would be easier to raft near Pagosa area, but we are willing to do it on the Arkansas, or any other location recommended, for moving/fun water/pretty views. Any advice is greatly appreciated!!!
