12/24/10 Numbers ELFing
Solo Elfed #4 thru #7 this afternoon. 2 to 4 inches of snow on the ground, a little ice in some eddies and on rocks. Granite gauge says 170 and Lake Creek says 70 but it didn't seem like 240 cfs. Water level 3 inches below the Chalice cup... Just cold enough at the takeout for ice to start forming on my PFD. Beautiful views of the divide. Kingfisher followed me for a while. Saw two dippers still getting wet, a fisherman, happy to be taking home a couple trout for Christmas eve dinner.
Despite my ELFing efforts and the snow on the ground didn't see Santa. Merry Christmas everyone.
