Rafting on the Roaring Fork

Rafting again 🙂 I put my cataraft together last Saturday and got it into the river today! The Roaring Fork is not running very high – around 1600cfs so I only went from Carbondale to Westbank. A lovely 2.5 hour float with two bald eagles and just flocks of nesting blue herons. Here is a photo of the put-in and also one of the river with a snow-covered Mt Sopris in the background that doesn’t show up very well on my cellphone camera but looked spectacular in real life!

About Bronwyn

Hi. I moved to the Aspen area from Australia in 1997 and have a daughter born right here in Aspen in 2000. I teach skiing (for the past eighteen seasons) and am a Real Estate Advisor with Engel & Völkers Roaring Fork.. I love to ski, snowboard, horse-ride, raft, and hike with our dog Sheila. This valley offers so much and one day I may also take up golf or fishing!
