Thank you for the advice on where to whitewater raft in CO! There will be three adults with very limited esperience. We want to go in the Buena Vista-Salida area and have found many companies that offer rafting, but I would like to know if anyone has had personal experiece with them. They all want you to think they are the best. A 1/2 day trip will best fit our schedule. Also, are any areas closed in CO because of the forest fires? We will be traveling the end of August.
