  The Arkansas river
by kenadams
 
 

The best description of the whitewater kayaking experience I've ever read is by a Miami Herald columnist, Dave Barry. Click here to read his insights into the world of white water.
Kayaking is fun and safe. As long as you have a sense of adventure (or sense of humor) you'll have a good time.
This Colorado section of the Arkansas river is not too hard and is accessible to first-timers during the summer, when the water level is lower than in the spring.

Equipment: Look for the Rocky Mountain Outdoor Center in Howard, Colorado. Their safety standards are excellent. You can buy/rent the equipment and hire an instructor all in one place.

Address: 10281 Highway 50, Howard, Colorado 81233
