Favorite rafting trips in/near Colorado???

What are your favorite rafting trips in or near Colorado? Both day trips and over nighters…
So far I’ve rafted and enjoyed:

Day trips:
Brown’s Canyon
Royal Gorge

Westwater Canyon

What other runs are the “must do’s” of the rafting world.

Gunnison Gorge is one of my favorite runs in the state. It makes for a wonderful overnight, albeit with some of the most difficult logistics around. The put-in is at the bottom of the Chukar Trail, which is a 1.5 mile trail down into the canyon. I highly suggest hiring pack animals to bring your equipment in for you, instead of hiking all the gear in makes for a very very long day in the hot sun.
