Quality Rapids & Phenomenal Guides

By Mild to Wild   •   June 27, 2019

We signed up for the Lower Piedra day trip. My husband and I have had limited experience with whitewater rafting, but are always looking for a high-adrenaline adventure. Despite our pre-rafting jitters at rafting Class IV-V rapids for the first time and a pretty intense orientation the evening before, we had the time of our lives! Our guides, Don & Aaron, proved to be extremely knowledgeable, professional, and most importantly – tons of fun! We had so much fun, in fact, that we signed up for a second day of rafting with Don & Aaron on the Upper Animas Needleton section – an absolutely pristine run of Class IV-V rapids again! We needed a bit more muscle in the boat for this stretch of big whitewater, so fellow guides Rio & Benji joined us. All 4 guys were awesome and kept us laughing the entire time! Moral of the story: There is AMAZING whitewater to be experienced in Southwest Colorado! And you should definitely experience it with Mild 2 Wild!
