Sun and fun on the river
Susan_M, Aug 2023

Exciting day on the river!

We had a great time on the river! Chris was an excellent guide who made sure we were placed exactly in the right spot to enjoy the rapids. He even “rescued” a few folks on the river that day. It was an unusually cold June day and the water was 34 degrees so we purchase the insulated socks they had. Be sure to bring shoes that can get wet and they suggested not wearing cotton clothing under the wetsuits. We really enjoyed our day!
Great day on Clear Creek

Our family of 6 all had a great day navigating the white waters of the Clear Creek with Simon our guide. Simon was great, he had great stories of the rapids and past adventures. We thought this may be too difficult for my wife and I, but Simon got us off every rock we climbed up on. My boys also loved trying to follow the directional orders that Simon barked out. Exciting and a great time for all of us.
