Looking for a one day rafting trip for daughter and I 8-13 or 8-14 any help appreciated. Thanx. Says Craig Steiner

Whitewater rafting and kayaking spots in Utah tend to be more forgiving than the national average, so if you're visiting here do keep in mind that lots of rivers in this state are good for beginners. The Ouray to Green River Town section of Green River in Utah is 128 miles long and is rated by American Whitewater as a
    class II-III section. This is the only paddling stretch along Green River. The starting point is not too far from Vernal, please print out a copy of the road map further down the page so you won’t get lost. The natural beauty
of Uintah/ Emery/ Carbon County and the playfulness of the water beats anything. You might have to settle for a hotel a bit away from the river if you want to stay the night, but you'd better reserve in advance because these hotels fill up quick. There's camping available near Green River. A bit of exercise and spending some quality time in nature have people coming from far and near. The wild scenery of the Book Cliffs is great. A section like  
this is is of course not run in a single day, so better bring your camping gear along.

Briefly about the general area:
There's perfect hiking along the Sunrise Dugway. Green River is a location that is pretty dried out typically. September is when you get the most rain here; January on the other hand is the driest. Through the summer at Green River temperatures are commonly in the 80's, and during the night it cools down to the 50's. Daytime highs all through the wintertime are in the 30's; winter nights come with lows in the 10's to Green River.
