A Whitewater Rafting Trip On The Yampa River In Dinosaur National Monument

June 13

2011-06-10-Yampa-849I was glad to be able to rent gear so I didn’t have to lug it from North Carolina. Jordan was wonderfully funny and easygoing; a real hoot. Molly was incredibly knowledgeable and willingly shared her love of the area.  A special treat was seeing the river through Tim Gaylord’s eyes; what great stories and a genuine love of the river. It was great fun to be able to take a turn at pulling the oars under Tim’s tutelage!  It is a lot harder than it looks! The waterfall was a really fun hike. Meals were incredible, it was amazing how the guides came up with such fantastic food at EVERY meal! It was one of the most fantastic trips I have ever taken. I was admittedly apprehensive about 5 days camping and rafting solo with my 15 year old son, but it couldn’t have turned out better. All the guests were fun, interesting and great to travel with and the guides put everyone at ease.  My son was made to feel at home with everyone. Thanks so much for such an enriching experience!!!
