On the Hill: Tubing on the Colorado River
July 4, 2013
Today’s activity: Whitewater tubing on the Colorado River.
Conditions: With temps reaching 95 degrees in Glenwood Springs on Monday, July 1, the Colorado River in Glenwood Canyon was the scene of much activity, from whitewater rafting to kayaking to tubing to just plain swimming in the mellow areas. The water temperature was 65 degrees and the river below the Shoshone rapids section was running at about 1,430 cfs, perfect conditions for tubing. Sunscreen was an absolute must, though, or better yet a hat.
Today’s weather: Scattered showers and thunderstorms, mainly before 5pm. Some of the storms could produce gusty winds. Partly sunny, with a high near 64. North northwest wind around 15 mph. Chance of precipitation is 30%. — National Weather Service
