Cherry Creek Class V Rafting!

Posted July 7, 2009 by Malina

nunes1After 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…..
