Our family of four (17 and 20 year-old daughters) went for a late day, half-day whitewater rafting with Whitewater Rafting LLC and had a fantastic time. My wife and younger daughter were very apprehensive at first, but they had a lot of fun. The class III rapids were a blast, but that wasn't all. The views from down in the canyon were beautiful. And to make it even more exciting, a thunderstorm overhead and the thunder rumbled through the canyon. It was very exciting. The rain was very cold, so we stopped by a hot spring pool on the edge of the river and warmed up for a while before completing our journey.

There are a lot of whitewater rafting operators in the area. We went with Whitewater Rafting Company in Glenwood Springs and we were not disappointed. This was the highlight among many highlights of our vacation. We did the 1/2 day (3 hour) tour. It was a great introduction to rafting. We went in early August when the river is not as high and it was still a blast. The facilities are great. They run a lot of folks through and it is very well organized. There were all kinds of folks on this trip - very young children, seniors, fit or fat, you name it. This is a great intro trip for just about anyone. Our guide Elle was fantastic (please tip these guys and gals if they do a good job). Elle gave us lots of history, folklore and some tall tales along the way. In between the rapids, Elle provided us with some swimming opportunities and challenging games like "circle of trust." We all ended up in the Colorado River at some point. We got into some epic water fights with the other rafts. You don't have to get super wet or end up in the river but I recommend it. We always felt safe. This is a must do activity!

This was a fabulous trip. We took our 2, 3 and 7 year old on the mild trip. The company made sure to give us a guide (Rick who was amazing!) that was experienced and good with kids. We look forward to going back when the kids are older!!
