Sure is an incredible amount of snow in the central and western high elevations of Colorado! In contrast, hardly any on the Front Range just west of Denver and Colorado Springs. Gonna be a good year for the west slope rivers!
Huh? 90% SWE for the Animas/Dolores/San Juan = lowest in state. 135% and 139% for South Platte and North Platte = best in state. It's looking like a pretty good year everywhere in Colorado, and per the numbers, the east slope rivers are doing better than the west. As of today.

This could occur by the end of this week.

Shit went down in the upper canyon... Below DAYWRECKER.... New trees.... New rocks(very large).... Where the ON RAMP/ S TURN RAPID
used to be is now a very large and steep manky drop... It may go but has a very bad hole half way down.... May holes and pin rocks be cause it hasn't blown out yet... It will take several thousand CFS to imbricate the new rocks... I'm trying to put a crew together to remove the large trees and old logs out before the make way into the NARROWS... A new lake was formed in the guts of the earth...All rapids in the narrows look fine... Beware of new wood if you beat us in there... I want at least 700 before I drop in... I'm not sure about above DAYWRECKER... Be ready for new shit or wood... THE RETURN OF CAPTAIN BLACK420 CB.....

700? Milo, I thought you were a black canyon enthusiast. I've done the black canyon way lower than 700.
