Took my high school senior son and two of his buddies rafting for spring break. We were the second group to raft the upper pigeon in 2013. Icicles were hanging from the rocks and the water and wind were painfully cold, but the guides from NOC took care of us as best they could. They provided good advice prior to our trip and good wetsuits and splash gear for the float at no extra charge. NOC has always been a first rate outfitter. I spend my money there, even though somewhat cheaper prices can often be found elsewhere.
As for the upper pigeon, its a good short trip for an introduction to rafting. Dont be scared off by the "thrill ride" characterizations unless you have small children. IMO, it's really milder than its class IIi-IV rating suggests; especially at the slightly higher than normal water levels at the time of our trip.
