any beta on the Ute Mountain run of the Rio Grande? Here is the description from a commercial company out of Santa Fe....doesn't sound bad for a weekend from Summit County, if the take out isn't a total bitch.
One hundred and fifty miles north of Santa Fe is a designated Wild and Scenic section of the Rio Grande. It is rarely floated, and thus has retained a wild beauty difficult to find in today's hectic world. If you are looking to escape the pressures of everyday life, join us on a two-day, 25-mile journey back to another era. The trip begins just north of the New Mexico-Colorado border, and as we head downstream, we begin our descent into the canyon. As the walls rise dramatically above us, it is common to be surrounded by thousands of swallows. Eagles, falcons, and owls are also spotted frequently. We will see an abundance of wildlife and a wide variety of native plants not found on other sections of the Rio Grande.
We will float downstream for about 10 miles to the campsite at Costilla Creek, where guides will assist in setting up tents for a night under the wide New Mexico sky. The guides will also be acting as chefs for the evening, cooking up a healthy, tasty dinner.
The next day, after a hearty breakfast, we continue downstream, running numerous class II rapids as the canyon deepens and narrows. It is about 14 miles of spectacular scenery from our campsite to the trip's end at Lee Trail. There, we will pack and hike up a short but steep quarter-mile trail to the top of the rim and the van waiting to return to Santa Fe. "
Any info would be helpful on this potential family trip
Thanks in advance
