The Ruby- Horsethief stretch of the Colorado along the UT/CO border is a good beginner run. It can get windy so best done as a overnighter in case you get totally stuffed on downstream progress. You need a camping permit these days too. Basically, a flatwater run at normal flows.

The Snake in WY/ID has some squirrelly strong currents that a noobie might find disconcerting in places. Just a heads up.

The Ruby Horsethief - Moab Daily - Green River Daily circuit could be the trifecta and a great way to blow a week. It'll get you to Colorado too!

And please, please watch yourself in high water if you happen to be in it in that small boat (PFD always on) ...
