The Big Gay Raft Trip is held each summer in Glenwood Springs, CO. This summer the 16th annual events will bring together 130+ guys and gals from all over Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, New Mexico, Arizona, Nebraska and around the country for two weekends of rafting and wet camaraderie on the Colorado River. A full day of rafting, including lunch, is less than $150
The August departure usually sees calmer waters so you don't spill your beer. Sit back, relax, and check out the scenery in Glenwood Canyon. There are still a couple of good rapids to toss you into the river. Calmer and warmer leads to more swimming and water fights, so bring a water gun!
Take the day off! Head to Glenwood Springs. It's only about a 2.5 hour drive from Denver.
