Rafting in #Alberta is at it’s peak in Adventure. West of #Sundre the #RedDeerRiver has settled down from the spring melt rush. We have been operating trips the last few weeks and everyone is having a very good ride. Some have even come out twice!
With the high water warnings in place, both for Alberta and British Columbia, people are wondering about the safety of the Red Deer River.
Since we are rafting in the foothills west of Sundre, this is the only part of the Red Deer River I know. Please heed the warnings about being near any of the rivers elsewhere in this large province.
You can see the comparative pictures, in this blog, over the last few months of the Red Deer River at Coal Camp Ledge. This is the final ledge of the river’s class#3 section of the upper reaches.
Three weeks ago the melt waters were passing through this section of the river and the river was quite high and dangerous. Below are pictures from June 28 of the same ledge. The river has dropped and the high water volumes have moved east and out into Alberta’s major cities and on into the prairies. This leaves us back to average spring flow rates for the section of the river we are rafting on.
So join us rafting. We can offer you an amazing, safe, river trip that you will thoroughly enjoy and maybe want to come back the next day too!
