A big log came down Illiff while I was scouting youcould hear it bouncing off all the rooster tail rocks you avoid if youlike your boatand face.
I'd been told in the past that running Cherry creek, through Denver, wasn't legal. However! I searched the Denver Parks and Rec. Website and can't find anything that comes even close to saying it's illegal.
While I'm not the final authority...I'd be out there if I could.
Last July when we had several days of torrential rain the creek was rocking! All of the Ped. Bridges downtown where way under water and the rapids where sick! I was busy pulling Drunken Bums out..but was also scouting lines! It could be possible to run from the country club to the confluence. Swimming would be out of the question! If you mapped it ahead of time and knew where the access points(the ramps leading down/up) where....it might be sane(but not very!). It would be good to have a support crew on Bikes or something with throw bags just in case.
Anybody want to be on standby should this happen again? I'm thinking of running it in a raft.
