Commerical Rafting Trip - Royal Gorge This Weekend - Newb Questions
Hi guys. Thanks in advance for any responses.
My family and I (4 adults) are going to raft the Royal Gorge around Noon with American Adventure this upcoming weekend. I know that with afternoon showers it's best to go in earlier, but I can't rally the troops that early for the drive in. I've only gone rafting once with some friends a few years back at Brown's and we flipped, all spilled out, went rushing down the river, etc. Needless to say, it was a scary introduction into rafting. Up until the flip, I had a blast.
Trying this again when family is in town, partially at their request and partially because I would really like to replace that crappy experience with a better one!
What can I expect this weekend? I looked into things and it says the Royal Gorge is at 500cfs. Honestly, what are we in for? Being from Denver and not seeing the river very often, I picture very fast moving water, lots of rapids and holes ready to pull the raft in. So, any realistic help would be so very appreciated.
