The average Colorado whitewater rafting or kayaking river tends to be a bit harder to master than those in other states, so keep in mind that many of the rivers here are not very forgiving. The wonderful Colorado scenery and the playfulness of the water attract people from near and far.
    If you're coming from Montrose it's not a long drive at all to the put-in location. The beautiful Uncompahgre Plateau Mountains scenery is an added bonus. There are some good hotels near the river, but if you donít have
reservations you might end up sleeping in your car. Getting some good exercise and spending some quality time in nature are great reasons to come. You might be into whitewater rafting or kayaking or both, doesn't matter, in this general area you'll find lots of paddling rivers. You can pitch a tent or park your RV at a nearby campground.
