Delayed runoff makes Yampa a late-season roller coaster
For Bucking Rainbow, high water into late June is a blessing. The extended season led to requests by local companies to extend the commercial rafting window as dictated by the city’s Parks, Open Spaces and Recreational Services Department. The opportunity to use city put-ins and takeouts usually expires July 6.
