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.

Thanks Logan.

And F'Bob reminded me that Lake Creek comes in above the Granite gauge so there was only 170 in there which is what it felt like.
