I stand corrected. I misread your first sentence. My apologies onthat.

I was also going off the OP's other posts about wanting to get some experience with other rafters before going out on his own (see:mentorship post) new raft. I'm assuming you saw those?

Either way, to each his/her own. The R.G. has claimed zero lives this year. The Arkansas is a bit of a different story.

I didn't read the other thread. Based on that though he may want to do a few local runs just to get a little time on the oars before driving down to the Rio.

GARNA’s mission is to foster stewardship of the resources of the greater Arkansas River region through education, volunteerism and experiences.

I think the bridge is immediately following the put-in at WW. Strainers left and right with a bridge positioned at a tricky angle in the current. There is a reason the locals and local guides call it "Killer Bridge".

Upper Colorado - Pumphouse to Rancho fishes good. Roaring fork from Carbondale to the Colorado. If you r up for a road trip, float the Green - Flaming Gorge Section A & B. Awesome camping and unbelievable dry fly action.
