But one of the most memorable ways to soak up the region's unparalleled beauty is by paddling through it.This is one of the West's premier whitewater rafting destinations and the roiling rapids of the Colorado River, as they course through Westwater Canyon into Utah, offer some of the area's most thrilling adventures.Where Eagles Soar The Colorado River runs just south of downtown Grand Junction, but it's the Westwater Canyon stretch -- about 30 miles down river from Grand Junction -- where the region's most popular whitewater rafting trips commence.This 17-mile run (starting at the Westwater BLM Ranger Station and ending at the Cisco, UT boat ramp) is like an appetizer to the famous stretch of the Colorado River coursing through the Grand Canyon.
A More Leisurely Approach While splashing down rapids is exciting, there are ways to enjoy an afternoon on the river without the adrenaline rush.From the seat of your raft you can gaze up at vermillion-hued cliffs rising as high as 1,200 feet above the river.Keep your eyes peeled to sight desert bighorn sheep, which sometimes amble along the cliffs, and the occasional bald eagle, peregrine falcon or turkey vulture circling above.Choose from kayaks or rafts and be sure to wear your bathing suit: It's a great way to beat the summer heat and soak up some unbeatable Grand Valley scenery.Something for Everyone While there are rafting and floating trips around the Grand Junction area to fit every skill level, novice to expert, there are also specialty trips for individuals with physical or mental disabilities available through Colorado Discover Ability (970-257-1222, coloradodiscoverability.org).
