Platte RIver trip Vs. Crystal RIver trip

Coming to the area mid-July and want to spend a morning on the water. Which river trip is more scenic - the Platte River float trip or the kayak trip /canoe trip on the Crystal River? Is the current water level a factor in making a decision?

Water levels are definitely a factor on the Crystal, but not on the Platte, which is especially beautiful & quiet in the early morning. The Crystal is more like a big creek, the Platte is more of a wide, lazy river.
