So.... recently I took a whitewater rafting trip - to be fair, it wasn't really a trip but more of a half day adventure - for a team building exercise for a company I work for. We floated the Royal Gorge with http://www.raftecho.com/trip/royal-gorge-rafting-trips
and it was a blast. I would like to get into whitewater kayaking, but recently moved here from land-locked Nebraska so never really had the opportunity for playing in the water much. I do own a loon 138T kayak and was thinking of maybe trying to float a few "tame" rivers or lakes to get loosened up and hone in my paddling skills then work into the whitewater part. Since I just moved to Colorado I am wondering if:
1. are there some tame rivers around here and how to I go about finding them?
2. Do you think my approach to get into whitewater kaykaying is a good one? I may add that I am no spring chicken, but do have a lot of adventure in me. I guess I am just trying to figure out the best way to learn the sport and also find some advice since none of my family or friends are remotely interested in doing this. Sorry for rambling - 1st time poster - hopefully long time learner.
