We just returned from a six hour all day rafting trip with Royal Gorge Rafting guide Jerad and photographer Cody. Both were awesome. We took the upper river, easier float first and had a great lunch of chicken fajitas, pineapple, tortilla chips and fresh fruit with chocolate prepared by Cody and Jerad, stream-side. Then, after the upstream warm up it was show time! The trip through the Gorge and its class 3 and 4 rapids was awesome. We were well prepared by Jerad's coaching and paddling lessons and had a great time. All stayed in the boat in the Gorge although I fell overboard on the upper river. No worries, the water was warm enough and due, again to superb coaching, we were prepared for such an eventuality and I was back in the boat with the help of my son in no time. My wife and I are 59 and in good physical condition and three "adult" kids 24 - 35 also active outdoorsy types joined us. We took a side hike into a slot canyon and enjoyed the shouts of encouragement from the train passengers. I would recommend this adventure for its thrills, scenic beauty, and wonderful life experience. I definitely recommend guide Jerad, he is very experienced and knows his stuff and camera man, kayak-er, chef, Cody is always there for backup in case of an over board incident. Simply AWESOME!
