East Fork of the Carson River is a nice overnight run with natural hot springs and easy (class II-III) whitewater. Late spring or early summer, depending on snow pack this winter. California Creeks - East Fork Carson River

Great stretch, but probably not a 2-day.

Upper Colorado from around Kremmling towards Glenwood Springs is a lovely trip. Bit of a drive from the Denver airport; less so from Grand Junction.

Seems like a ton of effort to rent gear and add airfares for an overnight.


Go for something near home for the shakedown.


Then buy an obscene amount of gear and amortize it out over a multiday on another western river.

I live in Eureka. Raftin there since 80. Hawkins Bar to Tish Tang would be perfect. Hawkins to Willow Creek needs 4k cfs up to 20k or more. It's pretty, can camp anywhere practially, including put in. Great campground at finish, Tish Tang.
Big Foot and one other Co in WC rent all the goods. Message me for any more info

Back to that lower Trinity run. No permits needed, no rangers to bug you. Those rafting Companies could do shuttle as well as outfit you.

What 4runner said = buy a used raft, edit down your car camping gear, figure out a local run, and go
