Colorado River, Utah
Primarily fed by snowmelt from the Colorado Rockies, this multi-day, 100-mile section of the Colorado River has rapids ranging from class three to five. In the “Big Drops” section the river drops 30 feet in less than a mile, as you take in the dramatic, multicolored canyons of Canyonlands National Park.
