River Rafting The Green River Through The Gates Of Lodore, Dinosaur National Monument

2010-07-16-Lodore-788Everything was very clean, from our bags to our tents! I was worried a bit about using your sleeping bags, but they were very nice. Our three guides were WONDERFUL. They worked really hard and made the trip a pleasure for all the guests. We also had a lot of fun. From horseshoes to hiking, we got to do it all. Food was exceptional! Four of the five members of my family are vegetarian and the food was just great and met all of our needs. What could be better than strawberry shortcake eating contest river side? I want a copy of the Holiday Cookbook! Vans were great and I liked that we stopped two times on the way to the put-in. It made the ride seem very short. The driver was very courteous and was waiting for us upon our return. I think our river experience was one of the best family vacations we ever had. The river guides were wonderful role models for our young teenage sons. They saw them working hard and playing hard and really enjoying themselves. Kyle (who was 19) was a particular favorite and inspired my boys to become river guides themselves someday.
