the mysterious Lower Laramie
Since I live on the Laramie River, in the mountains upstream of the town, this intrigues me. There are two nice little whitewater canyon runs (2+) near our house, but nothing worth driving a long way for. The lower part is more like ag. plumbing than a river, but might give a good run at the right flow.
When I checked out the Google Earth image, I could see water in the channel and some evident rockgardens, falls, etc. There's a long reach through the rocky stuff with no roads close. But most of the land (including the potential put-in) is private. Ranchers in those parts tend to be prickly and there are a lot of locked gates. There are also lots of rattlers along the streambanks.
I did find some gages, NOAA rather than USGS. The upstream gage is: <www.crh.noaa.gov/ahps2/hydrograph.php?wfo=cys&gage=bosw4&view>
Once you get there, look for an arrow for the downstream gage at Fort Laramie, which should give a rough idea of how much water's going through that reach.
If I get a chance, I might check it out this fall, for access, etc.
