That website is kinda weird... and I can see how it's confusing. I wish him the best though. The link you provided is trying to give a synopsis of Colorado [I]State[I] river rafting. The clip is most definitely the Arkansas River (one rapid on Brown's Canyon) near Buena Vista,CO; med-low flow on class III full day trip ( the most popular run in the State, and nearly the Country for commercial rafting). The Arkansas has nearly 100 miles of rafting, from Class I to Class V.
The mighty Colorado River flows west, and it's difficulty also varies by section. Check out a real website: It will blow your friggin confused mind.
Another thing about the website, this quote kinda bugs me: "One great thing about white water rafting is that unlike other extreme sports, it does not require a long training or preparation period, like diet or exercise."

I understand that customers come in all shapes, sizes, and level of fitness. However this statement is dismissive of the long training and preparation your guide/safety kayaker have undertaken, especially if rafting "extreme" sections. This statement almost seems negligent.
