Rafting Season is Here!!

April 13th, 2012

New Mexico River Adventures is on the water!!  We have been running trips since April 1st on the Racecourse, Taos Box, Orilla Verde and Rio Chama.  We just launched a Rio Chama 3 day trip, our second of the season, that will be sure to hold fantastic wildlife sightings this early in the season including numerous sightings of mule deer and raptors.  Due to the warm March we had in northern New Mexico and southern Colorado, there have been great releases on the Rio Chama in order to make room for all the snow melt coming into El Vado Dam. The Rio Grande saw higher than normal water levels through the Taos Box and Racecourse in March also due to warm temperatures.  We had some wet and wild rides through the Box and spotted our old buddies, the Big Horn Sheep.  The water has dropped down to more typical levels for this time of year which are still great to get out on the Rio Grande Gorge full day trip or the Racecourse half day trip.  We have some great storm prospects in the near future that will add to the snowpack and provide some great rafting later in the season!  Give us a call, 800.983.7756, or reserve on our website, for some fantastic early season rafting, it will feel like you have the river all to yourself!
