If you've been keeping track of things, you know that the Black canyon will be running about 1600 cfs for the next few months. I've always maintained that Colorado has an offseason because of the lack of water, not the temperature. Ben Luck helped prove me right this weekend with a quick saturday lap. Check out a few photos in the trip report:

And if you're too lazy to read the report and want three details right away, no we didn't run the 3 big ones. We were scared, since it was cold and the water was high.
I wouldn't recommend this as a first time flow for this run, and I want to draw special attention to the fact that we got up at 4:00 AM and finished just before dark. With that said, woo hoo! It was great and everyone should do it.
