Rafting the Royal Gorge with American Adventure Expeditions

I went to college to become an accountant.  After taking my first year of classes, I discovered I was not cut out for all the theory and stress that career entailed.  I started looking around at other options and stumbled upon the Recreation Management degree.  I was in LOVE!

One of my classes was an introduction into some of the ways you could use your Recreation Management degree.  We got to try a lot of different activities as part of the class.  I went Paint Balling, Hot Air Ballooning, and White Water Rafting.

Our White Water Rafting trip was a little bit dissapointing.  When we went, the river was not very full so there weren't really any rapids and it was more a leisurely trip down the river (until my brother threw me into the water and lost my prescription sunglasses.  But I'm not still sore about that or anything....)

When we moved to Canon City, we found the Arkansas River was a big part of the local life and economy.  As you drove through town or rode on the Royal Gorge train, you could see rafters having a ball on the river. It's something my kids are anxious to try, but I admit, I thought the price has kept us from trying it.  I didn't realize it was affordable after all.

And wouldn't this be a great idea for a birthday party?  My boys would LOVE to take their friends for a day of rafting and fun.

Recently, I was offered a half day trip down the river by American Adventure Expeditions.  This is from their website:

Our Royal Gorge adventure is Colorado white water rafting at its best and is consistently considered one of the top 10 whitewater rafting runs in the country! Our knowledgeable and fun Guides will securely take you through this epic stretch of whitewater while pointing out the beauty of the towering thousand foot canyon walls, and preparing you for unforgettable rapids. This AAE adventure is guaranteed to thrill even the most experienced whitewater-rafting enthusiasts.
Expect big drops and crashing waves while Arkansas River rafting through rapids such as Sunshine Falls, Boat Eater, and Wall Slammer. In addition to the amazing whitewater, you’ll float under the world’s highest suspension bridge at over 1,100 feet tall! These Royal Gorge rafting trips leave from our Royal Gorge office, just west of Cañon City.
