2013 Rio Grande Rafting Trip

In March of 2013, Central Colorado Conservancy partnered with Dvorak Expeditions, Nathrop, CO. We all met up in Fort Stockton, Texas to spend seven days rafting the Rio Grande River in the Lower Canyons just east of Big Bend National Park. This section of the Rio Grande is one of the remotest river sections in the Lower 48’s. During the entire time our part only encountered one other group on the River. It was a true adventure hauling the rafts over rocks and camping on sand beaches backed up by towering canyon walls.
