A Few of Our Favorite Things…About River Rafting Trips: Wildlife
by Julie K. Trevelyan
River rafting has a whole host of super coolness that attracts people. From the whitewater rapids to the tall canyon walls to the deep intimacy with our beautiful natural world, a rafting adventure offers bucket loads of fun. We decided to round up a few of our favorite things about rafting trips.
To kick it off, wildlife! Wild critters abound in and around the rivers. Highlights include these lovely creatures:
Eagles (Golden and Bald)
Scan the shoreline and the river in Westwater Canyon and the Green River through Lodore Canyon.
Keep your eyes peeled on the Main Salmon and late fall in Dinosaur National Monument.
Listen for gobbles on the Salmon River Canyons, Westwater Canyon, and Dinosaur National Monument.
Do you have photos of other Wildlife sightings from our trips? Email your photos to [email protected] and we’ll add them to the list!
