July Boating Options near Dolores & Telluride?
Hi all. I'm a class IV kayaker/rafter and will be taking a small group of teenage boys to spend a week near Lizard Head Wilderness in mid July. Among other things, we are hoping to find a river we can float, anywhere from I (tubing) to III (ducky/rafting). I realize the Dolores is low, including the west fork, but are there any short stretches that might fit the bill without tearing up my boats too bad?
I'd prefer to stay in that area, but we'll be headed home by way of Pagosa Springs: Are there any other I-III runs you can think of between Cortez and Pagosa that might still be running (San Juan, Animas, etc.)? Thanks!
