Class III boater moving to Denver

Hey guys,

Moving around July 16th. The low water I'm hearing about is a bummer. I've got a creekboat and a playboat. I can read and run class III and need someone to show me the line for any Class IV stuff. The hardest river I've done is the lower Gauley.

So will there be any non-bony choices once I get out there? I live in Indiana, so driving 10 hrs is the norm for me.

Yes there will be a few runs that are controlled by dams.

Foxton 3. (4- high), Waterton 3/3 + ( 4- high), Decker's 2 (3) about 45 minutes drive

Bailey 4 (3 5-) 1 hour, Gore 4 (5's) 2 hrs, lower Blue 1 1/2 hrs. 3-, Shoshone 3. 2 1/2 hours, upper Colorado 2-3. 2 1/2 hrs., low water Arkansas two and one half hours class two to four, Taylor River III and Gunny Gorge III both around 4 hours.

Within 10 hrs. New Mexico and Utah normally (dry this year except large permit rivers) NW Wyoming has water and runs into late summer ( some year round) Montana and Idaho slightly further.

would be happy yo show you Waterton /Foxton...likely. going there a lot anyway....oh big Thompson intermittently upper 2-3?, hair, 4/4+,or 3+/4- (4+) sections...
