Another good run is the Animas River that runs from Durango into Farmington, NM. It's a small river, but it'll give her a run for her money. Also, Dok, tell her about the box on the Rio Grande just south of Alamosa going into New Mexico.
no i sure haven't i think ihave a few to many rods and springs in my back to risk that one, however my niece ran it last year and she said its rated a 3 and she was ready for something a little more difficult, its pretty cool that any day from spring thru the fall ya can go down and go rafting.
