the easy put in is private property (bridge at the road to powderhorn) and they are watching. the other way in is up a dirt road back towards the Blue Mesa. drive up their a ways and then bushwhack your way down a steep and overgrown gully and to the creek.

Many miles of continuous class II and III with very few or micro eddys. it comes out in to the Lake and you have to paddle accross to the other side to your car parked at where the road is always in constant repair. It continualy slipping in to the lake there.

Be sure to do it the morning because the waves can get pretty big on the lake after noon.

Most say it is more work that it is worth but should probably be done once.

3 years ago we were shooed off Cibola by an angry ranch hand. This occured at the "easy" put-in. There was mention of "new" fences, the guy claimed they were in "bad places" and we should go over to the Lake Fork. He went on to say he had lived in the area all his life and he had never seen anyone put on Cebola. This was his justification for the "new fences". He reasoned that if no one ever runs the creek why not put up fences? The whole time, he was angrily kicking rocks into the road and busily avoiding any eye contact.

My buddy was profoundly unhappy at the interuption and at 6'6" he casts a pretty big shadow, especially when it falls on a 170lb. ijit. He had no problem communicating this to said halfwit who shall we say took a while to soak it up.

Earlier we had gone to the houses near the bridge to ask permission to cross over the new barbed wire fences on the bridge right-of-way. All the time these cattle trucks were going by us as we walked up and down the road trying to make sure we didn't step on someone's toes.

While we were putting on our gear I noticed two of the same cattle trucks drive by 4 or 5 times each, loading and then unloading cattle. There were two drivers, our guy and some other. Hell, I waved and smiled at them and one guy, our guy, just wouldn't wave back...

At any rate, I played good cop and got the ranch hand calmed down, he realized we weren't out to usurp whatev and that is when I took the opportunity to point out that he could have stopped the first f_ucking time he saw us and had the access conversation instead of driving by us as we walked up and down the road, knocking on doors then continued to drive by us as we put on all our gear and unloaded our boats! He mumbled something about "didn't know what you were doing", but shut up quick and locked his eyes on the ground.

That is when we laid it out that we were not there to tresspass or have confrontations but to enjoy ourselves and respect their property and observe any applicable laws. Thank god there's a different way in. I doubt i could be so charitable a second time
