10 Best White Water Rafting Trips

The December issue of Men's Journal has taken the liberty to issue their list of the 10 Best Rivers to go white water rafting on. For the most part, I completely agree with their list. A couple may not belong on the top ten as far as fun, excitment and adventure, but its a pretty good list. Maybe they will as Rafting America for our top ten list? That would be nice.

#1 Grand Canyon, AZ
#2 Alsek River, AK
#3 Selway River, ID
#4 Gauley River, WV
#5 Middle Fork Salmon, ID
#6 Tuolomne River, CA
#7 Upper Youghiogheny, MD
#8 Hulahula, AK
#9 Yampa River Canyon, CO/UT
#10 Arkansas River, CO

The upper Youghiogheny in MD would not be on my top ten. And maybe I would take the Kern River in California before the Tuolomne. yampa River Canyon in CO/UT should be replaced with Cataract Canyon. Now that I think about it, maybe i will come up with a great Top 10 Rafting list. I already established a great list for rivers to raft in the fall.

Thats it then. I am going to come up with multiple Top Ten lists for rafting adventures. Then we will see who the rafting experts are... (j/k- I just think it will be fun)

I have checked the rivers on your list but only those that are linked. I think I like the Gauley River for white water rafting. It looks like a good place to bring my friends on summer.
