Cherry Creek Class V Rafting!Posted July 7, 2009 by Malina
After a couple “higher water” and certifiably high adventure Cherry Creek rafting trips, we are now officially in the standard ol’ class V action. And by “standard” of course I mean the most challenging and extreme commercial whitewater trip in the United States. I mean Class V rapids that swallow 14 foot long boats and 10 foot oars. I mean a gradiant of over 100 vertical feet per mile–in layman’s terms that means STEEP! And I mean the “Miracle Mile” with its six back-to-back Class V rapids…….
So yeah, in this case I guess “standard” might not be the best word…..
