Best Run(s) in CO

OK, with little running across the state, the buzz is a little boring right now. Every once in a while somebody is nice enough to send us a link to a trip report from some other place that is sic and rad and has water. In this day of Facebook, and cooler sizes and raft outfittings, there just isn't that many good topics on here anymo'.

So how about this......let's try to come up with the best runs in CO, in several different categories. Now, I know what yer thinking: ''Didn't they do this in the back of WWSR?''
And you would, of course, be correct. But, that is just the opinion of the authors, and while it is a great addition to the book and it's likely their opinions are shared by many others, they are just two people among many, and perhaps others would put some in different orders, or include/exclude some in others. So if the category comes up and it's already been in WWSR then you can still say you agree/disagree with the book and why.

Ideas....
Best run(s) for blast rock/mank?
Best run(s) for Amtrak mooning?
Best run for disgusting and ridiculous airplane boofs all around?
Best run for destroying your shuttle rig? (In the book, but lets hear some stories here)
Best run to harass mindless tubers?
Best runs to feel like you are deep within the earth?

etc.

What would your ranks be

Best run to harass mindless tubers is Colorado river from grizzly creek to two rivers. Best mellow booze cruise / fishing roaring fork carbondale down. IMO.

Mike you didn't even name any runs. Were talking about Colorado runs, not other states you like more.

Anyways filter plant on The Poudre at lower flows often has tubers.

Ok, I'm bored so I'll bite.

At least for a III/IV boater this would be my list:

Blast/Mank - Any section of Clear Creek

Mooning - Upper C takes the cake, but lower Gunnison is in the running.

Boofs - Elevenmile

Shuttle Destruction - worst I've experienced is Chukar trail in my Suby.

Tuber Harassment - Salida Playpark

Deep Gorges - Gunny Gorge/ Royal Gorge
