Help with trip to Alma area

We will be vacationing in Colorado the beginning of June. We found a house we want to rent in Alma. Actually weren't looking to stay in Alma but the house we saw there really fits what our family was looking for.

Some Things on our list so far we would like to do:

Colorado Springs ( we know its about 1 1/2 hrs away)

Buena Vista for whitewater rafting

Salida for Captain Zipline!


Do all of these places sound doable from Alma?

Any other recommendations for a better place to whitewater raft?

Also Would like to know:

Is beginning of June too early for rafting?

We've been to Estes park in June--is the weather/temperatures about the same in Alma at that time of year?

Any help would be really appreciated-haven't booked the house yet so hoping to get some feedback first.

Thank you-

Alma does/did have a small organic general store under the coffee shop and they have Almart, which is a general store with more commercialized products. Two bars/restaurants. I know the pizza place moved from Fairplay to Alma a few years ago, but to be honest cannot recall if it is still around. The grocery store in Fairplay is pretty awful, if you can swing it I would buy food prior to getting into the area.
