In May, I had the opportunity to float the Dolores River in Western Colorado along with my son and two friends in two 13’ rafts. We floated through beautiful red rock canyons for six days, 97 miles, most of it road-less. Most years the river runs like a small creek with the water diverted to agriculture. This was an exceptional year for snow pack which resulted in a short window of opportunity to float the river between 2500 and 1800 cfs. On day three we ran Snaggletooth Rapid rated 4+ and here is the rest of the story, depicted in photos, intimately wrapped on a rock and humbled again by another river.
