Favorite rafting trips in/near Colorado???

What are your favorite rafting trips in or near Colorado? Both day trips and over nighters…
So far I’ve rafted and enjoyed:

Day trips:
Brown’s Canyon
Royal Gorge

Overnighters:
Westwater Canyon


What other runs are the “must do’s” of the rafting world.


Thanks!

Upper Colorado Pumphouse down,(really gonna miss that lodge)Lower Colorado Clifton to Moab (my favorite trip).Gunni,Ark below Browns, Sheephorn canyons,Upper Animas-Lower Animas,Roaring Fork if you like to fish! In middle summer Cataract is pretty much read and run (except the last two drops)easiest permit to get in the state of Utah.Moab daily is always relaxing all the way to potash.Get a map,Find a river and go. Drop me line and I'll go with ya.

Gunnison Gorge is one of my favorite runs in the state. It makes for a wonderful overnight, albeit with some of the most difficult logistics around. The put-in is at the bottom of the Chukar Trail, which is a 1.5 mile trail down into the canyon. I highly suggest hiring pack animals to bring your equipment in for you, instead of hiking all the gear in yourself...it makes for a very very long day in the hot sun.
