2 Day Raft Trip Was Unforgettable!

5 5 1
I went on the 2 day Gunnison Gorge raft trip and had the most incredible time. I've been on a few multi-day trips, but this one takes the cake. The guides were very skilled, knowledgable, and friendly. The views were unforgettable and rapids thrilling. My favorite part was the waterfalls on the second day.

The Bighorn Sheep Canyon trip was great!
