After living in Colorado for a few years now I finally experienced real whitewater rafting. At the beginning of the season we drove up to Idaho Springs to go rafting down Clear Creek River. Our guide said the water levels were the highest they have been in years. They close the river down for rafting at 1,000 CFS, when we went the level was at 900 CFS! I was so nervous I was going to fall out; luckily only one girl fell out of the four boats that went down with us. Such a fun experience.

A childhood tradition in my family was spending summer vacation s at the river. It is a favorite spot for all of us with so many fun memories made there. We’ve picked up the tradition again, and I love it! We rented a house on the water for a week’s stay. We did all the old time usuals- snow cones at the London Bridge, cliff jumped, swung from the rope swing, early morning ski runs to catch the glass, and endless hours of soaking up the sun.
