Rafters in Western Colorado Reach Agreement with Developer

June 15, 2010

Rafters in western Colorado can keep on paddling...for now. After months of negotiations, two rafting companies near Gunnison have reached an agreement with a private developer to continue floating along the Taylor River this summer. The developer wanted to ban rafting on a stretch of river that flows through his land, which ignited a storm of opposition at the state capitol. Bente Birkeland has the story.
