Boating season is upon us, with warm weather and rising river flows bringing plenty of rafts and kayaks to the popular whitewater spots. Commercial rafting companies have begun taking guests down the ever popular Shoshone Rapids in Glenwood Canyon, and kayakers can be found practicing on Glenwood Springs’ play wave ­under the Midland Avenue bridge in West Glenwood. Shoshone is shut down to commercial boating when the water hits 6,000 cubic feet per second. On Tuesday, the Colorado was running just under 4,000 cfs in Glenwood Canyon.
