By the way, it's an interesting article. Covering the history of WA as well as the history of commercial rafting on the Arkansas.
Having been involved with the Ark and the management thereof in the past, it's refreshing to see this article, factually correct too. Reed and Karen are indeed river legends and historians.. Joe and Sue are super folks that care, I wish them well in whatever pursuit they embark on.
I like Salt river rafting, They're a bunch of cool folks mostly from Durango. Not sure how much water we'll have but I'm guessing the end of February is going to be close to peak unless we've already seen it. https://raftingsaltriver.com/salt-river-shuttles/
