Rafting the Roaring Fork

Wow – no rafting in May this year. But we made it on June 1st! We put in at Carbondale and took out at Glenwood Springs at the Two Rivers park just after the confluence of the Roaring Fork and the Colorado Rivers. The confluence is so interesting as the water from the Roaring Fork was clear and cold which contrasted to the warmer more muddy waters of the Colorado. We were really lucky to have a perfect bluebird day. As we floated by the golfers on the way everyone waved. Mount Sopris still has snow and looks stunning from the river. On the way we also saw a few blue herons, some geese with their goslings and a very impressive eagle.

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 an Associate Broker with Basalt Realty. I love to ski, snowboard, horseride, raft, and hike with our dog Sheila. This valley offers so much and one day I may also take up golf or fishing!
