White River Recreation Area

Description:

Elevation 5040 feet. A floaters and paddlers paradise, the White River offers some great canoeing, rafting, and limited kayaking with a range of river trips between 24 and 80 miles. The 20 mile shuttle between the Bonanza Bridge and the Enron takeout is on a respectable dirt road. The ride is mostly calm water with a few Class II rapids during spring runoff. Put in at Bonanza Bridge and take out at the Enron Well location. Beware-- numerous large cottonwood trees lie in and occasionally across the river channel. Restrooms only at the take-out.

Directions:

Near the Utah/ Colorado border.

October's Animal
Most commonly found in the tundra of Rocky Mountain National Park, the pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
