This weekend I took my 8 year old son, sister-in-law and father-in-law on a rafting trip on the Animas River. Thanks to Dan at Mountain Waters Rafting and our great guide, Dane, we had an awesome time! The river is running swiftly and we covered almost 5 miles in just over an hour! The rapids were churning and the cool water was quite exhilarating at 9 o’clock in the morning! This was such a great trip that all of us, kids to seniors, had a memorable trip. I would highly recommend making rafting part of your vacation plans to Durango
Whether you pair it with a day on the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad, a jeep tour, zip-line ride, or make a full day out of it, you will not regret taking your family on this great adventure. Make a splash!
