Avon Area Trip, Need Suggestions

We have a group from VA, of Kayakers and 1 open boat, coming to Avon, CO the last week in July. We plan on hitting the Numbers, Browns Canyon and Royal Gorge sections of the Arkansas.
Looking for suggestions for other rivers/sections to hit in the area (probally no more than 2 hours from Avon) in the III+/IV+ range.
Any help would be great.

There is tons of stuff right by Avon, most will be on the Eagle or one of its tributaries. Hopefully you will still have a good flow in late July. Sections to consider:

-Gore Creek
-Gilman (at lower flows for the IV+)
-Down Chute
-And then the entire section of the Eagle below Dowd's all the way to Edwards

Within two hours you have a lot of options, those above are within 10-20 minutes. Check out Eddyflower when it is working for stuff near there, or pick up a guide book. It is a cool area to base out of IMHO.
