We took the Colorado River Float trip because our 7-year-old didn't weigh enough to do the Arkansas River trip. But, we certainly didn't miss out on any fun! Our guide, "V," was excellent and kept the trip fun for three young boys ages 14, 12 and 7. He pointed out wildlife that included four bald eagles, two golden eagles, big horn sheep, a coyote, trout and a vulture. He shared stories about the scenery and entertained the boys between the excitement of the rapids. This was an excellent experience for us. We felt safe and had a great time. Plus, lunch was fabulous! We would highly recommend this trip!
