hello all! I am planning a rafting trip for the end of June. Water is usually at its peak around fathers day and with the late run off the end of June should be perfect conditions. I have set the date for the 29th but if it does not work for anyone we could possibly switch the date. We will be rafting the Royal Gorge near Canon City which is approximately 2.5 hours away from Denver. The trip is an all day trip which includes lunch. It will cost around $120 with a discount I have gotten for us. Also, I have worked a deal with them to give us free wet suits (if you want one) splash jackets, and booties. It will be a early start to the day and details will come. Please send me a message with any questions!!

    Hi, everyone. I'm new and love the outdoors. I just joined yesterday and this rafting trip sounds like fun... wish i could pack and go... except that I have a 13-weeks old puppy in training and I cannot leave it all day. Maybe next time!

    Hi Jodi- My apologies. I don't frequent Meet Up regularly and don't have "pushes" to my phone / email, so I'm just seeing your request to contact you to confirm if we were attending (thanks to an advance reminder I left for myself about this). If it's too late for me to attend, that's fine. Otherwise, can we connect, somehow, or by phone about this? I was hoping to have a guest to travel with but that may not be the case. This looks like an exciting activity... but I'd be a first-timer.

      Hello there. Its not to late to sign up. I don't want to post my number on here but use the "messege " function on this site or email me directly and we can get in touch and swap numbers. There are 2 other ladies going and looking to carpool. One of them is sick so fingers crossed she can go. I look forward to talking with you. Email: [masked]

      Thanks. I just sent the email and once I have details to share with my friend (a male with all women here), then I'll know more. We were thinking of making a full weekend down there, so I would likely drive separately (if he comes).

    It is considered an advanced trip but first timers can go. They just need to be aware of what they are getting themselves into. I did this trip as my first trip and loved it. Check out echo canyons website it gives some more information. Being able to swim is important. Life jackets are required.

    what????monkeys don't sleep in trees....I just learned something....always good to learn somethin'.well maybe I could car camp or go to a CHEAP motel....

      Monkeys campout all the time! They look up in the stars, the moon and all the other night time things we see. But what makes them laugh is when they see humans trying to sleep in trees and the first thought that comes to their mind is...Now we understand why we were sent into space before them!!!

Cables from above were droped into the river and they have to remove those before rafting comapnies can go down the river things should be up and running for the 29th but I will keep you posted. until it is up and running I am holding off on making the resrevation.
