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.
