Come spend 3 days and 2 nights on the Colorado River traveling down scenic Ruby- Horse Thief canyon in SW Colorado. From the seat of your canoe you will be quickly immersed in the start of canyon country with the glow of red rocks, bald eagles and beautiful sunsets on the mighty Colorado. After 3 days of a mellow scenic float your river adventure will be elevated as we take guided tour through ‘The West’s Best Short Whitewater Trip’ that is Westwater Canyon. On this 17 miles stretch the river quickly narrows and you will awed by the Precambrian rock, the same rock found in the grand canyon, be challenged with class III-IV whitewater and finish as the river widens to take in the last views of this scenic stretch of river. Invited on this adventure are wounded warriors and one friend or special guest. After spending 4 days this trip will include all travel from Denver or Grand Junction, river and camping gear, instruction, meals, 24 hr. staffing and a fun relaxed atmosphere. Travel will be in canoes, inflatable kayaks, and support raft.
Please apply here for Wounded Warrior Program.

The Original Shakedown Street
One of the longest running Grateful Dead tribute bands in the world, The Original ShakeDown Street makes its home in and around the Rocky Mountain region of North America. Spawned from jam sessions at the Ancient Mariner bar in Manitou Springs, Colorado in 1987 (founded by Ted Galloway and Rick Starkey), the band quickly grew in popularity, and garnered a legion of loyal fans who refer to themselves as “Shakeheads”. In a few short years, throngs of “Shakeheads” could be found on the highways and byways of the Rocky Mountains, making their way to another Shakedown Street show.
In the live music venues of the Rocky Mountains, there are only a few bands that are able to consistently draw large audiences. Shakedown Street accomplishes this year after year by embodying the Grateful Dead ethos of improvisation and discovery, while maintaining an intimacy and open rapport with its audience. http://www.townofeagle.org/calendar.aspx?EID=1695
