Colorado River, Nevada

(4.5/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web)
Take in one of America's most famous and fiercest rivers, , and enjoy the wealth of recreation along its banks or rapids. The number of high-quality white-water rafting trips available has earned the 2,330 km (1,450 m) river the nickname "granddaddy of white-water rafting." However, the faint of heart need not worry, as it's not all thrills and spills on this body of water. More relaxing pastimes, such as wildlife watching and relaxing river walks, also draw a big crowd. The river's dramatic scenery is just as breathtaking as the rapids, with its varied flora and striking canyons. If you're embarking on a rafting trip, take precautions to protect your camera from water damage or loss.

Its length is approximately 2500 km. irrigates much of the desert plains of the States of Colorado, Utah, Arizona, Nevada, California, Baja California and Sonora, these last two in Mexico.
