Kodi Rafting & The Browns Canyon

As we arrivJessRafted to the Kodi Rafting outpost in Buena Vista, the sun was shining, the air was warm and we knew the water was running high. We were all excited for an adventurous day on the Arkansas River. We decided to do a full day trip as most of us have never done both the upper and lower parts of the river. The first part of the trip you really get to take in the scenery and views of the Browns Canyon National Monument.  If you’re lucky you might even spot a big horned sheep! About halfway through the trip, the river really starts to pick up as you go through “Siedel’s” section. With the knowledge and experience of our
amazing raft guides Boston and Flakes, we all felt very confident that we could power through it safely. Soon after, our guides tied up our rafts and cooked us lunch on the riverside. Once we hopped back on the river for the lower section, we approached a 2519298section called “Zoom Flume”. The name speaks for itself, it is a very fast paced and exhilarating stretch. Whenever we got to take a short break from paddling our guides told us stories and facts about the Arkansas River and Browns Canyon. Overall we would all rate our experience a 10/10.
