05 Jul White Water Rafting at Rio Grande with Far Flung Adventures, Taos, NM
Today our entire family and our close friends, a group of 12, went on a white water rafting racecourse half-day trip with Far Flung Adventures here in Taos, New Mexico. We made a reservation over the phone a couple of days in advance and paid a 50% deposit.
Because we had so little snow, the river was very low, a perfect set up for the little ones between ages 7 to 10.
Our guide’s name was Hank and he was absolutely incredible! He is a master of his craft, directing us so skillfully in maneuvering our raft. He was funny and entertaining. He was really great with kids. We all were laughing and having a great time.
There is something truly magical and so very special when you get outside in nature, breathing in the fresh mountain air, looking up at the big limitless blue sky in total awe, and connecting with Mother Nature.
Kids had an opportunity to jump in the water and swim for a bit. The freezing mountain river is quite refreshing especially on a hot summer day.
As soon as we got out of the rafts, Hank set up a picnic for us with home-made salsa, corn chips, juicy watermelon and oranges. It was just what we needed after rafting and being outside for a couple of hours.
When you visit the enchanted New Mexico, you MUST go white water rafting in Taos. Call Far Flung Adventures and ask for Hank. He is the best! Tell him that Blue Sky recommended him
