Take the two-man kayak trip! The Colorado River is fairly docile near Glenwood, so it’s worth it to be in your own little boat because every feature of the river is exaggerated. Plus you have the freedom to explore a little more and have your own conversation. The great folks at Blue Sky had extra room in the rafts so they let us ride in a raft through the big rapids at the beginning for no extra charge. We got the best of both worlds. Kayaking is as easy or challenging as you want it to be. You can float the calmer shore or aim strait for the bumps. The kayak is very comfortable, too with soft back support. They don’t make it clear what you can bring. I wish I’d know to bring a tube of sunscreen. By the time we actually got in the water the sunscreen I’d applied at the pickup point was in need of re-application. Got a smidge sunburned.
