We enjoyed a great week on the Middle Fork with Canyons Inc. The scenery and wildlife was breathtaking. Canyons Inc were incredible. A trip like this is the best way to reset life, getting away form cities, screens and technology.

I'm trying to decide if I should do a middle fork rafting trip mid-June. I'm concerned about it being too cold. I did the Grand Canyon rafting trip last May and we were freezing the entire trip. Can anyone who has rafted the middle fork in June let me know when and what the air and water temperatures were. Thank you.

We took this trip in August and found it difficult to fall asleep before midnight. The rock walls absorb daytime solar energy and radiates heat well into the night.
I have my family that wants to come.. my mom (there grandmother) died a few years back and let us a small amount of money to do something fun.. I've always wanted to do this 4,5,6, days whatever you can make work.. I have 1 son (38) who has a wife (38 or 39) and they have 2 grandkids.... a boy Calvin age 7 and a granddaughter age 10 I alo as have a daughter 35. She has 2 boys ages 6 & 14. All my grandchildren ar very nic/ and well Manard. . So having said all that I don't know the difference between the main fork the middle fork...what I would like is latter in the season the wat r won't be so high.. (I'm lookin for more of a float trip than a white water experience. . If you know what i mean. Thanks for everything in advance....

Hi, can you tell me which outfitter company you went with? There would be 7 adult family members in our group and given the expense of a trip like this, I want to pick the right company to take care of our trip. Thank you in advance for any insights you have to offer.
