Telluride Area Rafting for a 14 ft SB Oar Rig
My fiancee' and I will be in Telluride next week for Bluegrass. We will be there a few days early before the music starts and are considering bringing our raft to float some of the local rivers. We have a 14 foot NRS Otter and run it as an oar rig.
Are the local stretches of the San Miguel do-able, or even worth it in this type of boat at current flows?
I have the Colorado Rivers and Creeks Bible, so I have some beta...but am looking for more detailed info from those who have done it. If it is indeed do-able, what stretches would be best for a nice day float? How mellow are these runs? Besides the San Miguel, are there other rivers in the area runnable in a 14 ft oar rig at these flows this time of year?
Is it worth our time to bring the raft? We also have duckies, would this be more fun or is this even crazier? Any info and feedback would be much appreciated.
Thanks and see ya at the Festival.
