On the Hill: Camping at Rancho Del Rio

On the Hill Summer, brought to you by The Steadman Clinic and the Steadman Philippon Research Institute, brings you a video report about a different High Country adventure every weekday.

Today's activity: Camping at Rancho Del Rio, on the outskirts of Eagle County.

Conditions: Near the headwaters of the Colorado River, Rancho Del Rio offers camping and river activities near the upper Colorado, which flows lazily by. A popular destination for music lovers, Rancho Del Rio is located approximately 4 miles from the State Bridge Amphitheater, which hosts concerts on the weekends. Camping at Rancho Del Rio then floating in a tube or taking a standup paddleboard down the river to State Bridge to catch a show is a really fun way to spend a weekend.

Today's weather: Isolated showers and thunderstorms after noon. Some of the storms could produce gusty winds. Mostly sunny, with a high near 58. North northwest wind 10 to 15 mph. Chance of precipitation is 20%.. — National Weather Service
