If you've been whitewater rafting and kayaking outside Colorado you might find the rivers here a bit more challenging, so if you're not from around here don't forget that quite a few of the sections here are not easy. There are nice comfortable hotels here, and if you make reservations in
    advance you're all set. Great exercise and a chance to spend some time outdoors are great reasons to come. Some people prefer whitewater rafting and some kayaking, either way around here you'll find a large number of good
rivers. Whitewater paddling here in the Sawatch Range is a great experience. The natural beauty of Colorado and the sparkling of the sunlight on the water make the trip here worthwhile. If you're coming from Silverthorne it's not a long drive at all to the put-in location. And of course, there are campgrounds nearby.
