Who is ready to put on their float?
Summers are almost always spent near or in some kind of water. As children, we were always at the pool, swimming in the creek near our house, or putting the sprinkler under the trampoline to “help” daddy with watering the lawn. The easiest way to have fun and keep cool during these hot months is to use water.
For many, that means floating on the river.
If you’ve never floated a river before, it’s pretty fun and relaxing. All you need to do is grab an inner tube, some good friends, and pack a cooler. Oh, and don’t forget the sunscreen. Nothing puts a stop to the experience of floating the who river than a body burned to life. I also recommend that you wear good water shoes.
Once you get to the river, simply attach each other’s inner tubes to each other and use an extra tube for your cooler. And don’t forget to bring a garbage bag for empty cans and so on. # Leave no trace. Then just step into the water, put everyone on their tubes, and float on them.
I feel more relaxed just thinking about it.
Recently, Out There Colorado compiled a list of the top five places for tubing in Colorado. One of them is in Fort Collins, so we won’t have to go too far for that one. Even if we weren’t number one on their list, we won’t get too freaked out about it. However, it may be worth adding the others to your list.
Here is what they chose:
1. Clear Creek in Golden
2. Yampa River at Steamboat Springs
3. San Juan River at Pagosa Springs
4. Poudre River at Fort Collins
5. South Platte River in Denver
