Rule #1 Stay in the boat. Rule #2 Stay in the boat. Rule #3 Listen to your guide.
And my own: Rule #4: Get ready to get wet!!! Our terrific guide showed us the glories of the amazing Royal Gorge, complete with anecdotes and a demand to row (forward 2!). I must admit that I may have missed some of the amazing Gorge because my eyes were shut as I paddled through waves breaking over my head, but I never felt amiss with Denise behind me. If you only see one part of Colorado's amazing beauty, be sure you see it with one of the JourneyQuest guides. And don't be afraid to GET WET!!!More
