Royal Gorge Fire update: The fire is 100 percent contained. Highway 50 is now open and so is the River Runners Royal Gorge Rafting Center. Rafting trips through the Royal Gorge and Bighorn Sheep Canyon are now running daily. Authorities extracted a cable from the river on Friday, which fell from the Royal Gorge Tram during the fire.
The whitewater is epic and the weather is warm and sunny.

River Runners Riverside Rafting Resort Open
There is no evidence of the Royal Gorge Fire at the River Runners Riverside Rafting Resort in Buena Vista, Colorado. We even received a nice rain shower yesterday evening. Rafting trips on the Numbers, Browns Canyon and Family Float sections of the Arkansas River are running daily as usual. The water is high, providing a fun and splashy Colorado rafting experience.
