anyone paddling from the TELLURIDE bluegrass festival?

sounds like the san miguel has a nice III section that could be run while there for the bluegrass festivaL, just wondering if anyone might be paddling around the bluegrass festival time (june 17th weekend)?

the san miguel does have a little action, the best water is downstream of town. The area around Sawpit has probably the busiest and best rapids. From what I remember, it's a small stream with small eddies and the occassional wood or strainer. Definitely worth doing if your going to be in t-ride anyway.

Wish I was there.I'd parkn' play at the Main Attraction on the Ledges run rather than run Sawpit,a little farther but an excellent playspot at good flows.

there is some easy side of class 5 action just below the class 6 [about 3 miles from downtown] call me if you wanna hit it--596 1400. i think the ledges kinda sucks, but the sawpit run is fun, continuous class 3. the lower mile of bilk may have enough water, and it is manky 5-. the miguel needs to be 650 or so for any of this to be going. you can run sawpit section down to 400 or so, but it gets bony.

think it will be on it's way down or hold steady for the next week? 550 cfs right now... don't know the snowpack down there this year.

I usually set my limit at four or so, and then I'm likely to be counting fishies occasionally, but not for too long

leaving wed, afternoon if possible. haven't seen a good spot in the lineup to duck out, maybe sometime early? (not that I'm a morning person, per se, but for paddling)

kudzu, are you going to be in town park? I'll be in town park for camping and the in show, six foot tall, long red goatee and hair. I don't have a cell phone but I have till wed to know somewhere to be at sometime to meet up...

steven, are you in telluride or just nearby? I could stop by to find you if you are right in town? that is if you feel like running a measly three section...

Redbeard, Chris, Steve-

I will be in T-Ride Thursday afternoon through Monday morning, and would love to paddle a couple of times while I am in town. My cell is 970.376.3326. Redbeard- Friday mid-morning looks like a good time to go? Chris- are you from Mississippi?
