  The Colorado River begins its long journey to the sea in the northern Colorado Rockies at Rocky Mountain National Park. In Colorado, there are many whitewater sections and slow moving float sections suitable for river rafting on the Colorado River. Some of the best are shown here.

The Colorado River is the 7th longest river in the U.S. at 1450 miles. It flows through Colorado, Utah, Arizona and Mexico before it's final destination in the Pacific Ocean at the Gulf of California.
