The Trip-Finder, January 1998
The Route: A relatively posh but damp four-day inn-to-inn rafting trip from Buena Vista through the Class III and IV rapids of Browns and Bighorn Sheep Canyons.
When to go: May to August
Travel advisory: Bring plenty of pile and a wetsuit — water temperature is in the low fifties, and the dry air at 8,000 feet can trigger deceptively large evaporative heat losses.
