Kari and I have been kayaking ever since we lived in Maine, but had never been on an extended raft trip. What better way to get the kids out and about than pile camping gear in a boat and float down a river?
We headed out with the DeFords and the Lesters for 3 days on the Colorado – Cisco to Hittle Bottom. As far as river trips go, this is about as easy as it gets. Class I – II the whole way, warm – no HOT – days, and a ton of time in the water. Too bad it was the color of chocolate milk, but oh well. Next year we’ll step it up a bit to class II or III, and fresh clear water.
