It's an outdoor activity that's getting into full swing this time of year -- rafting.
Experts say the sport is something that the entire family can enjoy.
"There's a trip for everyone," says Will Colon, of Raft Masters. "It doesn't matter what your ability is or your age -- there's a section of river for you."
He says this will be one of the best years our area has had for the sport in years because of snowpack levels.
The Arkansas River is one of the premiere places for rafting in the country. The Canon City Chamber of Commerce says during a good year rafting can bring in between 230,000 and 250,000 people.
